New Study

Silent and Solo: How Americans Pray

Prayer is the most common faith practice among American adults, but it’s also one of the most complex. The Bible speaks of numerous kinds of prayers and different traditions emphasize certain kinds over others. Not all Americans think about it in the same way—or even pray to the same deity (if at all). A new study from Barna reveals the diverse prayer habits of American adults.
