Spending time in God’s presence through quiet prayer and meditation is now more important than ever. Today’s youth have many distractions from the I-pod, I-pad, Internet, twitter, facebook, etc. They are being inundated with information 24/7 and need to learn how to break away from it all.
Encourage your children to set aside all devices and distractions and find some quiet time each day. This is a discipline and learned practice that will take time to develop, but I assure you it is much needed. One day your child will thank you for teaching them this practice.
Sacred Scripture says, “But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who see in secret will repay you.” Matthew 6:6
Today it might sound something like this… But when you pray, go find a quiet spot that does not have a Wi-Fi connection, close the door and turn off your i-pod, and pray to your Father in secret.
Communication with our Heavenly Father is available to all and a Wi-Fi connection is not required 🙂
Peace, Bo Govea
