Abstract: 

Background and Purpose: Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women, which jeopardizes different aspects of individual health. In this study, we aimed to determine the association of praying and life expectancy with general health of women suffering from breast cancer.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive, correlational study was carried out in Rasht, Iran, 2016. The study population included 115 patients, 90 of whom were selected using the Morgan table. The data collection tools comprised of Miller Hope Scale (MHS), General Health Questionnaire, and pray questionnaire. Afterwards, the data were analyzed using multivariable regression statistical methods and Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.
Results: The results showed a significant negative correlation between praying and general health (r=-0.463, P<0.01) and its parameters, that is, physical signs, anxiety, social conflict, and depression. In addition, there was a significant negative correlation between praying behaviors and general health (r=-0.329, P<0.01) and its parametes, namely physical signs, anxiety, social conflict, and depression.
Conclusion: The results of this study indicated that the correlation of praying behaviors and life expectancy with general health of women suffering from breast cancer was significant. This finding underscores the need for spritual methods in order to promote optimism and hopefulness in medical treatment.
