Other things seem much more appealing, and a lot of the time we choose those other unimportant, trivial, worthless distractions which bring small pleasure in the moment, but have no value in the long run. But prayer is so necessary!
I struggle with prayer all the time. It’s not fun and at times it feels like it’s worthless, and I'm always distracted. But that in itself is part of the spiritual conflict and when we're tested, our will to keep going is prayer itself.
So, don’t give up. Make this Lent your ‘prayer Lent’ and focus on it. Really focus. Like when you’re watching a football game or reading your favorite or book, or enjoying your favorite movie. Get prayer done! Make it great! I mean, hey, we need to pick something to work on this Lent, right? So why not focus on the very groundwork of our spiritual lives?
God bless. Talk to ya soon. Zac.
