Trust-Based Prayer Expectancies and Health Among Older Mexican Americans

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal, and R. David Hayward. 2014. "Trust-Based Prayer Expectancies and Health Among Older Mexican Americans." Journal of Religion & Health, 53(2): 591-603.

This study assesses the health-related effects of trust-based prayer expectancies, which reflect the belief that God answers prayers at the right time and in the best way. The following relationships are evaluated in our conceptual model: (1) older Mexican Americans who attend worship services more often tend to develop a closer relationship with God; (2) people who feel close to God will be more likely to develop trust-based prayer expectancies; (3) people who endorse trust-based prayer expectancies will have greater feelings of self-esteem; and (4) higher self-esteem is associated with better self-rated health. The data support each of these relationships.
