My interest in the subject of this thesis dates back ten years to the time when as a College and Theological Seminary Graduate I began to make my first visits to the sick in the congregation of which I had become pastor. Questions began to present themselves because the average sick calling seemed so perfunctory. Was I calling just to bring greetings from the church and to show my own interest? If I had prayer with the person who was sick, what answer should I expect to my prayer? Would or should there be immediate improvement and if not, why not? Would prayer help at all in the recovery? Was prayer merely a subjective spiritual exercise and if so did it have value alike for functional and organic sickness?
