Simply Praying....

Tipster Tuesday
Ever notice how as soon as you start to pray your mind goes into overtime and you can't focus?? Or is that just me? As soon as I am praying I think of 100 things I need to do and my focus isn't on prayer. I think that this is an attack from Satan... he doesn't want us praying. How is a girl like me to stay focused??? Just like I do with many other things.... use my timer!!! I know that might sound crazy, but it really works....!!! Set it for 5, 10, 15 or any number of minutes and just PRAY til the timer rings. Push everything else out of your head till it rings!!!
I am a flybaby and I use the timer MANY times a day, but praying with the timer is new to me. This was suggested in my new Bible study... Praying might not seem like something you should do to a timer, but for us that are easily distracted timers are wonderful!
Have a great day!

This is an interesting idea, I might have to try it. It seems so different.... but I think it would work.
