Prayer Proof?

Are you statistically likely to pray?

The Pew Forum on Research recently asked American Christians about their prayer habits. Think you have a healthy prayer life? Tally your points from this quiz to see how you compare. 

 

What type of church do you attend?

A historically black church 4

Evangelical Protestant 3  

Orthodox Christian 2

Mainline Christian 1

 

 How old are you?

65+ 4

50-64 3

30-49 2

18-29 1

 

What’s your gender?

Female 4

Male 3

 

How much do you earn per year?

Less than $30,000 4

$30,000-$49,999 3

$50,000-$74,999 2

$75,000 + 1

 

According to the study, a female making less than $30,000—who attends a historically black church and is older than 65—would score a perfect 16 points and statistically pray the most. How did you compare? For a better measurement, how does your prayer life compare to 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (NKJV)?
