I think each of us at times is guilty of not finding quality quiet time so when we pray, we can focus. Liked your closing sentence which is a great reminder that God wants our undivided attention in prayer.
Smile..sounds like my prayers.
I think our prayers should be interspersed with our thoughts. "Pray without ceasing."
Thank you for writing this.
This is so true to life. I'm glad God hears and cares about all we say and think, even when we get distracted.
Ah, such honesty! God hears it all and we are forgiven for our distraction. Very well done.
I struggle with this so often. I think the devil loves to get us off on rabbit trails, seemingly innocent, but detracting from our prayers overall. This is insightful indeed.
A convicting, well-written story--a reminder for me to concentrate on God's goodness as I pray.
I liked the message and the interlacing of thought and speech. I was anticipating something more than the one liner in the sigh from heaven at the end and was waiting for a different twist in the events prayed about. Overall, it stood to make the singular point outlined in the title - the title is what got me. I'd recommend using the title within the story repetitiously, I think it'd bring out that sketch a little stronger. Also, a two sentence intro in non-dialogue might set the character up more at the outset. Great material woven into a story that surely finds many that can relate in this busy world. Thanks for the read.
This is oh so true. How many times do I find my mind wandering when I should be focused on the One who makes it all possible. Great job and a well deserved congratulations for your win.
You've been there haven't you? You wrote this too convincingly. Yep, pray without ceasing. Congratulations on your so deserved EC win!
Nice writing. Your internal thoughts were very realistic and you perfectly touched on the struggle of a wandering mind during prayer, even when we are alone. Congrats of the EC.
