Although much has been written on theologies of healing and on evangelist healers, little is known about how pentecostals in the pew pray for healing. After placing a pentecostal understanding of healing within a larger cultural context, the relationship between prayer and healing is explored through a survey of 1827 adherents from 21 Assemblies of God (AG) congregations. The survey data will be used to provide descriptive answers to basic questions about pentecostal healing in America, including: (1) to what extent do pentecostals claim experiences of divine healing; (2) what are the socio-demographic traits related to its practice within the AG; (3) how are personal reports of divine healing related to different forms of personal prayer; and (4) what is the relationship between prayer and healing prayer experiences and being used as an instrument of healing for others. The outcome of statistical analyses using key variables strongly suggests that prophetic prayer is a leading factor in accounting for differences in reported healing experiences.
