An individual's perception of God is shaped by their daily experience and feelings towards deity and is acquired during the individual’s encounter with sacred- relate objects. The aim of the current study was the prediction of life satisfaction from representation of God in medical sciences students. This study has a correlative research design. To accomplish the stated goal 130 students were selected by means of proportional stratified sampling procedure. The image of God Inventory (Lawrence, 1997) and satisfaction with life scale (diener et al., 1985) were administered on them. Analysis of data using a multiple regression analysis revealed that the magnitude of life satisfaction can be predicted from the quality of student's representation of God (R2 = 0/20). Moreover, data revealed that students who had a positive and accepting representation of God were higher in life satisfaction than students who had a negative representation of God.
