A Prayer When You're Distracted

3m | Sep 8, 2022

Ever long to pray with focus but the smallest things pull your attention away from what is most important?

Here is a guided prayer to help you fight the distractions:

  • Share with the Lord your current distractions.
  • Rest in God’s goodness and reflect Psalm 23.
  • Ask God to bring awareness.


This prayer has been adapted from my book Springboard Prayers. If you were encouraged by it and would like 124 other prayers to read when you don’t have the words, grab a copy at 

Also, if you’d like a prayer on slowing down, check out the end of our Prayer in A Noisy World episode 19 with Diana Kerr. She wrote a beautiful prayer on slowing down that I asked her to share and it has been so encouraging to me!
