Distractions in prayer are common to me. My worries, my projects, my duties, my family, my community, and our world can distract me. A swirl of distractions can keep me from the waiting arms of Jesus Christ. It is often necessary to cross this sea of distractions to rest gently in His Arms. However, when I sit still – and wait as silent as I can, I begin to feel the inner peace I long for every so greatly. It is worth the effort!
