Do Americans Pray? You may be surprised at the numbers
The bible says we are to pray always, to be persistent in prayer. But do we? You may be surprised. As of 2018-19, Pew Research says 65% of Americans profess to be Christians. In a study from 2017, Barna Research says prayer is the most common practice of faith among Americans who engage in some kind of religious activity. As of 2017, 79% who pray have done so at least once in three months. Of those who pray, 82% pray silently and 62% of the content of prayer is thanksgiving.
