Are Your Half-Prayed Rosaries Wasted? (The Patrick Madrid Show)

Maybe you’ve been there. You start to pray a Rosary or Chaplet but then you soon fall asleep and start to snooze. Was your prayer “not counted?”

Rafael calls in to ask Patrick Madrid about this, and here’s his response.

🚫- Patrick says, “Nope!” to feeling bad about unfinished prayers. It’s not a sin.

  1. All About the Heart! ❤️ – It’s the intent that counts. Praying with a true heart? God’s all ears, even if you doze off mid-Hail Mary.
  2. Interruptions Happen! 🔊 – Life’s full of surprises, and so is prayer. If you get cut off, don’t beat yourself up.
  3. Ideal vs. Real Life – Sure, finishing a prayer is the goal, but hey, you’re only human. Do your absolute best to finish your prayers and leave the rest to God.

So, next time you’re half-asleep, clutching your rosary, remember… incomplete prayers are still prayers. Keep it up, and sweet heavenly dreams! 😴🙏✨
