A stunning new survey is giving a fascinating lens into how young Americans are spiritually responding to the COVID19 crisis, with large proportions turning to prayer amid the uncertainty.
The study of high school and college students, which was commissioned by Young America's Foundation and The Federalist, found that 39 percent of students are praying more often amid the coronavirus, Just the News reported.
And that's not all, as 24 percent of high school students and 31 percent of college students also reported that they are now "thinking about spiritual issues more often," the outlet noted.
The results, which were collected among 800 high school students and 800 college students from April 24 through April 27, come as uncertainty continues to grip the nation — and world.
That precariousness is reflected in survey results finding that 69 percent of students are at least somewhat worried that they will be infected with the virus, with 80 percent worrying about friends and family falling ill.
Amid this chaos, one thing is for sure: it's encouraging to see young people turning to God amid the uncertainty and consternation.
