Today I am sharing this bit of practical advice from
Abbot Issac on Jesus’ instruction in Matthew 6:6:
"We pray in our room whenever we withdraw our hearts completely from the tumult and the noise of our thoughts and our worries and when secretly and intimately we offer our prayers to the Lord. We pray with the door shut when without opening our mouths and in perfect silence we offer our petitions to the One who pays no attention to words but looks hard at our hearts."
Sometimes we just need to bolt the door; some can turn off hearing aids which is a great help; others might try ear plugs!
