The P.R.A.Y. Program may be used by any Christian denomination.

While P.R.A.Y. values formal partnerships with the national denominations, P.R.A.Y. does not enforce any “membership requirements” for churches to use our curriculum. Only one stipulation is in effect: the final review must be done by the pastor (see eligibility guidelines).

The P.R.A.Y. Series is a program of the church. Its objectives are to help young people grow in their understanding of the Christian faith, to help young people see how other people have translated belief into action, and to provide young people with the opportunity for Christian service to others. Many organized bodies of the church were represented in designing and testing this program. A conscious effort has been made to develop each unit of the program without theological bias; yet each program is designed to permit the introduction of particular theological and denominational viewpoints on the material being studied. It is the responsibility of the counselor to provide this input.

Families and congregations of the following denominations have helped youth earn P.R.A.Y. awards.
