You and your partner will take the survey on your first and fortieth days of praying together. Your private information will be unseen by anyone except social scientists at Baylor.

Get Started...

PTST Founders SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt began to champion the joys of Partnered Prayer in 2006 when they encouraged people to partner up and take the 40 Day Prayer Challenge, praying 5 minutes a day for 40 days.

Although the concept of Partnered Prayer may sound like something new, it was actually introduced by Jesus 2000 years ago. He said, "If two of you on earth, agree—in prayer—about anything, it will be given to you by my Father in heaven."
