Predictors of multiple dimensions of spirituality/religiosity (S/R) and adolescents' preferences for having S/R (e. g., prayer) addressed in hypothetical medical settings were assessed in a sample of urban adolescents with asthma. Of the 151 adolescents (mean age = 15.8, 60% female, 85% African-American), 81% said that they were religious and spiritual, 58% attended religious services in the past month, and 49% prayed daily. In multivariable models, African-American race/ethnicity and having a religious preference were associated with higher levels of S/R (R 2 = 0.07-0.25, P<.05). Adolescents' preferences for including S/R in the medical setting increased with the severity of the clinical situation (P<.05).
