Behold! The Lamb of God

Hello Everyone,

Happy Good Friday to you! Good Friday is an opportunity for us to reflect on the death of Jesus Christ and what the death of Jesus Christ means to us.

Have a lovely Easter!

Yours in Christ,

How To Avoid Distractions In The Place of Prayer

Hello Readers & Followers,

I hope your week is going on well and I hope the weather is lovely where you are. It's raining here at the moment; I've had a hot drink to keep warm. As I was typing this article, my mobile phone was beeping and I was going to look at it. However, I ignored it as I know it was a distraction. Nevertheless, I think it would have been helpful if I had put it on silent mode. How do you avoid distractions when you are spending time with God? Why do we become distracted in the place of prayer? Whose fault is it? The state of our minds? The role of the devil? External factors such as; our friends and families or our business or workplace?

As Christians, Jesus expects us to pray. In fact, in the Book of Matthew 6:5-7, Jesus used the phrase "when you pray" rather than "if you pray." This means God is expecting us to communicate with him. Let me share the scripture in Matthew 6:5-7 for you to read:

"When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again."

Now that we have established that Jesus wants us to pray. Does Jesus expect us to pray for a few minutes, a few hours or can we decide on the duration that we pray for? 

Matthew 26:40 says "Then Jesus returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you watch with me for even one hour?"

Can you spend at least 1 hour with God in a day? How can you avoid distractions in the place of prayer?

It's a new week! I hope you've had a lovely weekend. Is there anything that you'd like to throw into the fire of the Lord and for the fire of the Lord to burn up?
