  • Many times, I have started sitting up when I pray that helps allot.

  • Yes. I also get distracted. I've cut the prayer down a bit so it isn't as long and drawn out. I recite the prayer, and get to the point.

  • I was a Christian as a child and would fall asleep praying at night. I would wake up and panic lol. I would kneel at the side of my bed and finish will a lil apology for drifting off and then go back to sleep.

  • While I am not a mother (yet), I have also gone to sleep while praying. It is important to have a relationship with God, but He does know your heart. I was taught to pray whenever I couldn't sleep. My mother told me to pray for, by name, everybody I knew. I don't see anything wrong with it. Falling asleep while praying won't send you to hell.
