Trained customer service representatives either did, or did<br /> not, receive (over a 14-day period) daily intercessory prayer for the specific <br /> needs and challenges of their workplace. Speed of call handling was <br /> evaluated for each customer service representative. The specific dependent<br />measures were number of calls per hour and number of seconds per call. No<br /> statistically significant differences between prayer and non-prayer groups were <br />found for either calls per hour or seconds per call. <br />
