I often have a hard time staying focused. Sadly, my thoughts can stray even when I am praying! One minute I am conversing with God and the next I am thinking about what I am making for breakfast or about the load of laundry that needs to go in the dryer. Sometimes multi-tasking is great, but when you’re praying… notsomuch. 🙂

To help stay focused and pray a coherent prayer, I will write it as I pray it, into my prayer journal. This helps me stay on track, pray more to the point, and helps me to dwell more on what I am praying instead of just rattling it off. I usually write a prayer and then add a list of specific prayer needs for friends and family, etc. at the bottom and then I pray over those. That way I can just reference the list later if I need to and I can transfer needs that are still applicable on the list from one day to the next.

It’s not rocket science, but it really helps. 🙂

Happy Wednesday!

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
