My ladies Bible class is studying prayer. Last Sunday a woman came who had just returned from working with missionaries in another country. I asked her how her prayer life changed when she was in that country.
This woman shared that she had learned to shut out all distractions so she could focus on her prayer times with God. She said in that country most people do not have TVs or computers or cell phones. It was easier to focus on God when there were no TV shows to watch or cell phones to answer. When she returned to America, she decided to not watch so much TV or spend as many hours on her computer.
Our Bible Reading today tells us that Jesus went alone to a place to pray. Jesus wanted to get away from the distractions of the world so He could pray.
I hope you will be able to spend some quiet time alone with God today. Focus on Him and His Word.
