    pray so that

    Hi,

    -I have always prayed to be able to keep alive.

    Is that a good sentence, or must I change it with ''I have always prayed so that I can keep alive''?

    Thanks.

    Neither one is correct.

    Re: pray so that

    'I have always prayed for a long life.'

    You're not going to stay alive for ever.
