It seems as though since college, I have awaken from deep sleep to a need to pray. However, lazy as I was I would work hard to go back to sleep w/o a prayer one. Now as I’ve gotten older, but it began while I was nursing and I would say the rosary or sing prayers to my infant and toddler. This year I’d been taking otc stuff to stay asleep…but I would still wake up and feel the need to pray.
So now I realize all this time it’s been a need to pray, worship, and maybe my best time to be with God. But wow, this seems likes 25 yrs or so and I just thought I had a sleeping prob. So now I’ve realized the past six months when I pray I go to sleep quicker and my prayer time is not formal, just lying in bed, but it is comforting. Do others experience this? I have spent so many years fighting this and it is strange to me so I am wondering.
