Wayward Thoughts


‘One way to recollect the mind easily in the time of prayer, and preserve it more in tranquillity, is not to let it wander too far at other times. Keep your mind strictly in the presence of God. Then being accustomed to think of Him often, you will find it easy to keep your mind calm in the time of prayer, or at least to recall it from its wanderings. I have told you already of the advantages we may draw from this practice of the presence of God. Let us set about it seriously and pray for one another.’

~ Brother Lawrence, eighth letter to a friend,

‘The Practice of the Presence of God’

‘…seek first the kingdom of God…’

Matt 6:33 (NKJV)
