Yawning during prayer

Alright, I am out of ideas on how to stop this - but each time I pray out loud, I yawn repeatedly. I have tried to stop it by adjusting my breathing, or taking a few minutes to focus before opening my mouth, or forcing a yawn before praying, and nothing works.
Does anyone else have this problem? Any tips on how to stop it from happening?

Hi Jason,

Perhaps somehow this has become a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy as you worry about it more?

I have been self-concious about practically whistling when I say "true God from true God" on the tr's of the true's during the Creed. I never make that sound saying tr any other time but only during the Creed during Mass. The more I try not to do it the louder it seems. Most likely no one else but I am noticing it.

My husband said he stuttered as a kid and cured it by holding a pencil between his teeth and reading out loud. Something like that which might seem silly but cause your focus to shift away from the yawning problem.

Now I'm yawning ... ... psychological power just thinking of it.

Marcia, that could be - I could start to pray an "Our Father" right now, and break out in a yawn before I finish the first petition. Its becoming more frusterating

I have this same problem as well, but it only happens when I say the Lord's prayer, for some reason. I also only yawn one time though. I really can't explain it; it's odd I admit.

When I enter in prayer, I begin with the Lord's prayer and a Hail Mary. Another odd thing that always happens to me is I always begin being distracted, but as soon as I end the Lord's prayer and begin with the words "Hail Mary", my mind suddenly snaps out of the day dream and regains focus. another odd thing.

Blessings,

-Davide

Jason, I'm sure it will work itself out. Some of it may be you were just so comfortable with the prayer (not bored, just it is so familiar) that at a time you were tired it slipped in here and there, and then you noticed it happening.

Hope all is well with your family, I may need a baby holding fix again soon.

Geo,

What helps me is standing up straight and looking at a statue or an icon. I usually kneel for my Rosary, but especially in the morning, I find standing in front of my little altar in my room helps me to wake up in the morning. Prostrations help, as do bowing and other reverential gestures, because they get my body into what my spirit is trying to say to God. If you have a bad back or other physical malady, maybe you can do something that is appropriate for you...crossing yourself like the Byzantines do, or whatever else.

St. Teresa of Avila (my God, I love her) once said, - with classicly robust vocabulary - that her mind was like a wild horse that she could not tame. She just could not pay attention at times. It was this fact that made her very much an iconodule; she loved pious pictures and exhorted her nuns to look at them, to recollect their minds and to help them get in the spirit of prayer. Her method of recollection is also very helpful.

One thing about the Desert Fathers is that many of them did not pray long, but they prayed often. This is what keeps the attention on God, keeping the commandment to pray always, yet not slipping into long-windedness and tiring the soul; even the soul, being one with our body, needs rest from the sometimes stressful activity of prayer (especially when it is dry, and arid) and maybe a nice walk, or reading, or whatever else helps you to meditate or recreate yourself, may be in order.

Maybe you should ask a Priest or maybe, if you are so blessed, a Confessor, about how you can improve your prayer life?
