I very much want to establish the first waking moments of my day to prayer, particularly the Rosary. However, I drift off to sleep easily, no matter what time I get to bed the night before. So, I drink coffee while praying, it seems to help with the wakefulness part, but I am concerned that this might be a bit disrespectful. Comment please! Thank you.
While I wouldn’t want to bring coffee into church, when praying at home or outdoors I fail to see what the harm would be in drinking coffee while praying. So I say if it helps you pray then go for it.
