They’ll tell you, it’s the power of prayer.

Two nuns critically injured in a fatal drunken driving crash in early August are getting better.

According to their monastery's website, Sister Charlotte Lange has been moved out of Inova Fairfax Hospital's trauma unit, but she still faces orthopedic surgery. Sister Connie Ruth Lupton remains in the ICU, however her condition is also improving.

The nuns were on their way to mass when their car was hit -- head on -- by an alleged drunken driver in Bristow, Va.

A third nun, Sister Denise Mosier, was killed in the crash.

A 23-year-old man reported to be in the country illegally is accused of causing the accident. He survived and is charged with involuntary manslaughter and DUI. Prosecutors plan to seek a murder charge.
