Are these sentence grammatically correct and natural? Please suggest a better one if you think so.

1) When will our conscience prick?
2) When will our dozing conscience arouse?

Just some suggestions. I am not sure exactly what you want to say.

1) When will begin to have a conscience?
2) When will our dozing consciences be awoken?

Sentence (1) is grammatical, but it's not natural, not the way a native speaker would express the thought. More natural would be "When will I feel the prick of conscience?".
Sentence (2) is also grammatical, but it's also not natural. It would be better as "When will our dozing conscience waken?".
