From this article: https://qr.ae/Ti1Bns

Sounds reasonable to conclude that patients would engage in prayer with the expectation of health benefit.

What does the bold part mean? Does that mean, patients will try to pray to get health benefits?


Yes, but I'm not sure if you mean your question in quite the same way.

It means that they would pray, expecting that it would improve their health to do so.

As I read it, the implication is that they think that praying itself is good for your health, not that they are praying for some intervention. (I may be wrong - more context would help)
