How many young adults do you see each Sunday at your church? Apparently a new study says fewer millennials are filling the pews these days.

The new study suggests more Americans may be losing the faith. Since the survey began in 2007, it's found a steady decline in the number of people who say they're affiliated with a religion.

Also, the number of believers has tumbled. In 2007, 71 percent of Americans said they're absolutely certain God exists. Today, that number's 63 percent.

The survey also finds fewer people between the ages of 19 and 25 are going to church. In fact, only 28 percent of Americans in that age group attend services weekly.

One girl said her spiritual needs get fulfilled in the yoga studio rather than under the steeple. 

On the other side of all this, researchers found the number of Americans who pray daily has increased.
