The Pain and Prayer Project seeks participants

The Episcopal Church in Delaware
Posted Apr 12, 2021

We know that people use many techniques to cope with chronic pain, including praying to God or a higher power. We are trying to better understand what kinds of prayer are most helpful. If you are interested in participating, you can go directly to the screening website: https://is.gd/PainandPrayerScreener

The goals of this project are the development of the first ever scientifically validated bedside-prayer-tool. Participation is easy via online questionnaires. All spiritual backgrounds are welcomed. If you or someone you know is suffering with chronic pain and uses prayer or meditation to cope with their pain, we would love to hear from you. We need a few hundred volunteers.
