People with Disabilities Prayed for by Strangers – a Research Survey

A research study from the University of Colorado Denver is asking for help from the disability community.  They are seeking individuals with disabilities who have had a stranger tell them they will pray for them. The goal of the study is to identify patterns within experiences.

To qualify for the 5 to 10-minute survey, you must:

  • Be an adult between the ages of 18-89
  • Live in the U.S.
  • Have a disability in any one or more of these categories
    • ambulatory
    • hearing
    • independent living
    • self-care
    • vision
  • Have experienced a stranger offering to pray for you

The study is limited to adults with only these disabilities because we are unable to meet the requirements needed to administer it for adults with any cognitive disabilities. If you have a cognitive disability, we, unfortunately, cannot collect your information at this time. (Cognitive disability is defined as having difficulty remembering, concentrating, or making decisions because of a physical, mental, or emotional problem.)

The study will collect demographic information and sentiments felt about this experience. Demographic information consists of disability status, age, gender, race/ethnicity, education, income range, and religious participation.

The survey will not record anyone’s name, email address, or other identifying information.
