from Christian Today:

New research has found that faith and prayer are helping many Brits through the coronavirus lockdown.

In a new study by Savanta ComRes1 for Tearfund, nearly half of UK adults (44%) said they pray, with a third of those saying they have prayed since the start of the lockdown because they believe it makes a difference.

Over half of those who pray (56%) agreed that prayer changes the world.

Significantly, younger adults were more likely to say they prayer regularly – at least once a month – than those aged 55 and over (30% vs 25%).

Asked what they pray about, over half (53%) said for friends and family, a quarter (27%) for frontline services and a fifth for someone who is suffering from coronavirus.  Fifteen per cent said they had prayed for other countries affected by the pandemic.

Half of those surveyed (51%) said they had witnessed answers to their own prayers, while two thirds agreed that God hears their prayers. Nearly half (43%) said that their prayer can change the lives of people living in poverty in developing countries.
