A researcher needed : Prove the benefits of prayer using studies.

Budget N/A
Bids 26
Average Bid $172

Writer and researcher needed for editing and expanding an article about the above topic.
We have already written around 1500 words, it will give you a very good starting point but it needs editing and we want it to be expanded to at least 6-7k because we know there are a lot of studies on this subject.

The topic: Prove the benefits of prayer using studies.

I want every study that will show that prayer works.

As for the scientific level of the studies.

Someone told me that: "For a study to prove that prayer works, a big random sample of people with the same injury would have to pray the same prayer, and be healed in exactly the same way."
This is an impossible study, it is like saying that god must answer all of them and that all people's good dids are equal and that praying means just to "say words" and has nothing to do with the inner emotions (who fluctuate all the time)...

This means that what someone may define as a study is an impossible study in our case not because it cannot be proven but because it is impossible to prove using the above guidelines, I mean, god is not working for us...

So what CAN you do?

Find all the studies that prove prayer to work in general and on average.

Your job is NOT to give the conclusions on the scientific LEVEL of the studies and get caught in to details but to BRING the studies including every study that has a good level of logic and enough people participated on.

To prove that payer works you don't need to have people who pray the same pray on the same injury etc... but you do need to gather data on enough people who prayed on different things and have a control group who didn't and then you can check the averages and see who wins.

One more thing - Remove ANY religion aside on this article. You will use studies that used religious people etc but all your conclusions must be aimed at the pray and god - no middle mans in the form of religion because it is not our focus.

For example:
"one study proves that religious people tend to have healthier life habits".
Instead you write - "it was proven that people who pray, who are connected to god, tend to have healthier life habits"
Basically it is the same thing BUT we want to put our focus on the direct connection to god and the benefits of prayer.

With that said do NOT change quotations of course, bring them as is and explain as in the above example.

When bidding please answer the following:
1. What is your experience on researching?
2. Pray = talk to god (put all religions aside). Do you pray?
3. What is the frequency of your prayers? every day? every week?
4. Do you define yourself as religious? please elaborate.
5. What is your origin Arab? American? Jewish? etc.
6. please send me an example of some topics you worked on the research (to prove something) from scratch.
7. Is everything clear? do you have any questions on the nature of the work?

Looking forward,

    I can express myself in amazing ways when it comes to writing, that's why I hate speaking, because where spoken words fail me, written words empower me. Someday, this mother-of-two (hopefully more) wants to become a recognized professional Journalist.
