|A Prayer Diary
I’m feeling a little concerned. With so much family activity going on at the moment, my prayer time is short changed and my routine fragmented: I get distracted. So today I’m appreciating those 3th century desert fathers and mothers who left the distractions of the city in search of solitude. But the religious and the curious followed them out into the Egyptian desert and so they had to learn to pray in community. That’s what happened to Jesus.
