According to a Harvard Business Review article, three Baylor University colleagues surveyed national business leaders and discovered that entrepreneurs have a more dedicated prayer life than non-entrepreneurs. Their study revealed that 34% of entrepreneurs, compared to 27% of non-entrepreneurs, pray several times a week.
