A new survey conducted by Savanta ComRes, and sponsored by Premier Christian News, to study Britain’s public’s habits around attending religious services and praying, has found that Muslims are the faith community who exhibit the highest levels of this, with 4 in 5 saying they pray regularly.
Hindus are the second community who pray most regularly, with 3 out of 4 also saying they pray regularly. This is reflective of non-Christian faith groups as a whole, who are more likely to pray (52%) than Christians (38%).
12 percent of British adults say they pray at least once a day, which stands in contrast to a similar survey undertaken in the United States, where a Pew Research survey found that 49 percent of Americans say they pray every day.
57 per cent of Britons say they never pray.
Cities see a higher prospenity to prayer; 38%of those who reside in London are more likely to pray regularly, in comparison to 23% of British adults generally. Those in Scotland are least likely to pray (14%)
