To Fall Asleep While Praying?

"Do you remember the first time you fell asleep while praying?

For me, it happened when I was about 16 years old. My job at the time required me to wake up at 4 a.m. (not an easy task for a teenager) and spend my entire day working outside mowing lawns, weeding garden beds, trimming bushes, and spreading mulch. It was intense and difficult work, and by the end of the day I was exhausted."
