There is nothing on this earth that is worth even one minute spent in sincere prayer…

Colossians 3:2 Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.

“Beloved, do not be distracted from your prayers, but in the Spirit, make straight the way of the Lord. There is nothing on this earth that is worth even one minute spent in sincere prayer. Ponder this my child. Your daily duty is important, yes, but do not let the cares of this world come between you and the object and goal of your life–namely Jesus. Detach yourself from all that is earthly. Make prudent use of these things without being consumed by them. Be ready to let everything go if Christ asks it of you. How can you cling to Christ when you will not let go of what is earthly? Ponder these things, my child. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what it is you are clinging to and ask for the grace of detachment. My child, cling to me, and your joy will be complete.”

Jesus I love you. Holy Spirit, show me what it is that I cling to and grant me the grace to let it all go for love of Jesus. Father, Son, and Spirit, I love you. Have mercy on me and on the whole world. Amen.
