Pause and Be Attentive

I am suffering from an affliction
Wanting to he heard
To Pray and lift my voice to You
not harking to Your word

My mind it moves so swiftly
from thought to thought it goes
even when I worship You
It would be better if I slowed

To focus my attention
on Your voice instead of mine
Slowing down for some reflection
So my heart with you align

Lifes busyness carries over
Is this more effective?
Checking prayers off of my list
is awry and ineffective

The grace behind this privilege
is to converse with our Creator
It is not to listen to myself
but hear from He who's greater
