Coronavirus causing Americans to pray more, new study says

While the new coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many churches closing their doors in the name of social distancing, a new survey of more than 11,000 U.S. adults shows that the disease has also inspired more than half of them to pray.

The Pew Research Center survey of 11,537 U.S. adults conducted March 19-24 shows that some 55% of them say they have prayed for an end to the spread of coronavirus.
