Ask God to help you stay focused during your time of prayer.
Often when we dedicate time for prayer or meditation, we are bombarded by countless distractions. It could be distractions from other members of our family, or it could simply be a barrage of thoughts going around in our head.
Whatever it is, we need some divine intervention!
Here is a quick prayer from My Prayer Book, asking God for help to stay focused during meditation.
O God, Cleanse my heart from all distracting thoughts. Enlighten my understanding, and inflame my will, that I may pray with reverence, attention, and devotion. Amen.
