While praying, has your mind ever drifted off to your to-do list? Have you been distracted by notifications on your phone, or just lost your place and forgot what you were praying? If so, in today's episode, I want to offer you some practical tips that you can implement to stay focused when you pray.

Key Takeaways:
• If you're finding yourself distracted and losing focus as you pray, ask for God to help you. If anybody is going to be able to help you, it's Him.
• Any prayer is better than no prayer at all.
• Start small, be patient with yourself, and you will get there. God doesn't need much to do much. So if five minutes of focused prayer is all you have, give it to God and know that He treasures every minute.
