U2 frontman Bono and his family hold impromptu prayer sessions in their bed. The 53-year-old singer gathers with wife Ali Hewson and their children Jordan, 24, Eve, 21, Elijah, 14, and John, 12, to ask for help for sick family members or those struggling in life, reported Contactmusic.

“I pray to get to know the will of God, because then the prayers have more chance of coming true, I mean, that’s the thing about prayer.

“We don’t do it in a very lofty way in our family. It’s just a bunch of us on the bed, usually, we’ve a very big bed in our house. We pray with all our kids, we read the Scriptures, we pray,” he said.

The ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ hitmaker sometimes goes to church, but does not sit through a full service.

“We read the scriptures and sometimes we just slip into church as it’s ending and find some peace and quiet and say our own prayers.”
