I picked up that number from some article I read when the earthquake was in the news. I just checked wikipedia and they say this:

Religious practice often spans Haiti and its diaspora as those who have migrated interact through religion with family in Haiti.So if you add up the numbers, you get 96% professing Christians, and 66% are involved in vodoo to some extent. What that means would have to be explored more. What aspects of "vodoo" are cultural, and which are occult? But in any case, I don't see how this could be a cause for judgment from God since he allows a billion Muslims to run around without wiping them out with earthquakes or other natural disasters. And he lets Hindus and Mormons do their thing. And if we use the "God blesses those of whom He approves" then we are confronted with all the cults who say their success is proof that God approves of them. And the suffering of genuine Christians? Obviously not a judgment from God. So I think it best that we leave the mystery of calamitous events in this world unanswered.
As for prayers - I think that is very important, but it would be very strange if God destroyed all those lives to "make a point" about us not praying enough.
