Do you pray every night?

Do you ever feel like you're rushing through your prayers just so you don't feel guilty for not saying them?

  • i don't pray every night and i don't feel guilty about it either. i pray a lot. all day, every day. so if i don't do it at night, it's no big deal. i usually do pray at night though, just not every night.

  • I have felt that way lots of times...but more often it's when I'm already laying in bed. I'm tired and just feel like I wanna get through it so I can go to sleep. If I pray before getting to bed at night, then I feel much better about it.

  • I talk with God all day long. I try to pray every night at 9:00 because it's our "triple trinity hour" and everyone at our church prays at the same time for anyone on the prayer lists. But I don't always participate for whatever reason. Sometimes I feel a little guilty about not being more involved. But that's about it.

  • An Atheist believes that deed must be done instead of a prayer said.

  • I pray while I am driving, thinking, cleaning, doing yardwork, etc. I do pray at night but not everynight because sometimes I have problems I am trying to figure out or so tired I knock out. I do thank God for another day when my feet hit the floor.

  • I talk to Him all the time. I usually thank Him at night and I'll say a prayer but I don't have a routine like, get on you knees and say a specific prayer... no. Don't feel rushed, just make some time for Him in your busy day. If I am rushed, I'll go to Prayers Catholics online and pray for a few minutes.
