Wandering in prayer . . .


From a post on Distraction and Prayer by John Eldridge–his blog might be worth checking out. I am going to try what he says here. My problem–I don’t even notice that I have been distracted!

Years ago I was sitting under a man’s teaching in my church. He was teaching about prayer. And of all the things he said, the one thing that’s helped me most was this one thought: When you realize you are distracted, don’t just plow ahead. Stop, go back, and pick up again with the prayer at the last point in which you were engaged. Sort of like wandering in the woods; don’t just keep going. Stop, back up, retrace your steps, go back and pick up the trail where you last left it, and then carry on.
