This research sought to determine if intrinsic religiousness, extrinsic religiousness and prayer are causally related to ethical attitudes in business. A study of 561 un-dergraduate students, from four Christian universities, determined that intrinsic re-ligiousness and extrinsic religiousness are significantly related to ethical attitudes. In addition, prayer was found to be significantly related to intrinsic religiousness and moderately correlated with ethical attitudes. However, the study was unable to establish a strong causal relationship between intrinsic religiousness, extrinsic reli-giousness, prayer and ethical attitudes.
