This article reports on an exploratory qualitative project exploring how the concepts of "prayer” and “worship” are understood by those who identify as Pagan in the UK. There were more than four hundred completed responses to an online survey containing a modified version of the Attitude to prayer scale. We found that although respondents raised issues in relation to the use of the terms, “prayer” and “worship”, in relation to Pagan practice, the majority were in agreement that they did, by their own definitions, both pray and worship.
