Scott Morrison has revealed his 'wonderful family' and 'strong personal faith' keep him from getting too stressed while running the country.

The Prime Minister, 53, is a devout Pentecostal who started dating his wife Jenny in year 12 after they met at the Waverley Gospel Chapel youth group in eastern Sydney.

In an interview on KIIS FM radio on Monday morning, Mr Morrison said his faith allowed him to cope with the stress of managing the Covid-19 pandemic.

While discussing the nation's vaccine rollout, host Kyle Sandilands asked: 'You know that it's all on your shoulders. You seem to be coping pretty well, have you got a good stress level? You must have an amazing stress level?'

Mr Morrison replied: 'Well, that's the same whether it's Covid or anything else, that's the job of the Prime Minister, that's what you sign up for.

'I've got a wonderful family and, people probably know, I've got a very strong personal faith.

'It's a personal thing but we all have the things that drive us forward each day and I get a lot of encouragement from people around the country, some people are very kind, Kyle,' he said.

Sandliands asked Mr Morrison if his busy work schedule meant his wife was 'in charge' of the household.

'Jenny keeps me very real, can I just say that,' the Prime Minister replied. 

'She holds our family together and when you have a life in politics, there are a lot of stresses and strains on the family.

'Keeping your family together, that is very important... my first job is a dad and a husband and of course, prime minister,' he said.

In an interview with the Weekend Australian, the prime minister said he prays almost every day - on his knees when possible - and reads the bible from his phone, lately perusing through the Old Testament.  

Although his religious journey started in childhood, it was not until his adult years that he would become a member of the Pentecostal faith - which has controversial customs, such as speaking in tongues and claims to heal by the laying of hands.

Growing up Christian, Mr Morrison attended the Presbyterian church at Waverley, in Sydney's ­eastern suburbs, with his family as a child.   

But it wasn't until Year 7 that he would make the decision to commit himself to becoming an active Christian for the rest of his life. 

While attending a Christian youth organisation camp in Melbourne, Mr Morrison felt compelled to make a promise to forever serve Jesus.  

'On that camp I gave my life to the Lord, on Jan­uary 11, 1981. I was 12. I massively felt it that day,' he told The
