When we pray

When we pray

By Rhoda Klein miller

Take one unsuspecting egg and one heavy cast iron frying pan and you have all the elements you need for an anti-drug commercial in 1987 or 1997.  Inevitably the ovum-noggin symbol is fried or smashed as a “this is your brain on drugs” illustration.  The scare tactic worked on me – but not all my peers. 
These days we have more accurate ways to see how our brains are affected by substances and thoughts. Since 2000, nuclear medicine SPECT scans have provided metabolic and functional data to neuroscientists. One study that caught my attention revealed “This is your brain on God.” In this week’s message (watch it here)  I’ll share a look inside Morgan Freeman’s praying brain. We have evidence that supports the wisdom of the Bible which teaches us we can be transformed by the renewal of our minds (Romans 12:2) when we take our thoughts captive and turn them over to Jesus (2 Corinthians 10:5).
