An answer to the question Dr. Oz posed to Dr. Nemeh on his show

Dr. Oz said in his interview with Dr. Nemeh that many of his patients told him they prayed for healing, and he wanted to know why their prayers were not always answered. He asked Dr. Nemeh in what way his prayers were different that made them more effective. And Dr. Nemeh replied that everyone's prayers were the same; everyone had the same access [to God] as he did. The only thing that mattered was their "state of mind".

Here is an elaboration. A lot of people pray from their head space rather than their heart space. They pray with thought rather than feeling. And at the same time that they send up the prayer they also send up doubt. What goes out is a double message: "I ask for this, but I don't really believe I'm going to get it." "I don't really believe that prayers work." Their thoughts create an interference pattern.

Modalities such as Matrix Energetics have demonstrated that there is such a thing as instantaneous healing, but it happens from the heart space. The Matrix mantra is "drop down (into the heart space), create intent, and let go (or 'let God')". As I watched the video of Dr. Nemeh "dropping" people in his prayer service, it reminded me of what I see in Matrix workshops, except in Matrix there is a lot of silliness and laughter, whereas Dr. Nemeh's healings happen in a church in the midst of great solemnity.

But regardless of where the healings take place, the mechanism seems quite similar. Dr. Nemeh drops down into his heart space, into his faith, and becomes one with God and with the person standing in front of him, and out of this joining of the three, healing happens. No matter how you look at it it's beautiful, it's possible, and it's entirely real. Dr. Nemeh seems very skillful at holding this healing space through prayer, and what he does could become quite reproducible if he could teach others to do the same.
