A majority of Americans say they have prayed for an end to the coronavirus, according to a study from the Pew Research Center.

According to the study, 55% of American adults say they have prayed to end the virus. Most notably, 15% of those who say they "never" pray confirm doing so amid the disease, while nearly a quarter of those who do not belong to any religion say the same thing.

A majority of Americans also claim they have scaled back their attendance at church, though much of that may be due to many churches cancelling their services to help halt the spread of the disease.
