Fr. Mike Schmitz Explains the Battle of Prayer

(View segment from 3:38 to 6:46)
After the battle to get to prayer, what is the next battle you face?

  • Distraction!

What helps you overcome distraction in prayer?

  • Something good and beautiful to focus on like a picture, an icon, a crucifix, or the words of scripture.

How should you react if you catch yourself being distracted?

  • Calmly refocus.

If you get distracted about the same thing over and over, what do you?

  • Take it to God and talk to God about that thing.
