The Discipline or Grace of Prayer

If we do manage to set aside time to pray, we are easily distracted at every moment, our minds drifting about and wandering to trivial things and endless lists of what we want God to do for us.  At times our greatest joy in this discipline will be that of being able to check it off our list for the day and being able to say we have done it.  Should God grant us the desire and ability to pray, we are likely to feel superior to those who confess a weakness in this area.
