Prayer or natural recovery?

Check out this story from Knoxville, Tennessee.  Sixteen-year-old Sequoyah Smith was in a coma after receiving serious injuries.  While it’s touching that the community rallied this much support for her, you have to wonder at their faith in faith. I know it’s a puff-piece from a local news crew, but I wonder how the Green Team would have reacted if the reporter had asked “Do you think it’s just as likely that Sequoyah’s body simply recovered on its own?”  And had she died, would the news have reported on the inefficacy of prayer? (Thanks to Alice for the news tip!)
