The scripture of Hebrews 2:1 reminds us that we need to pay attention to God and what He has taught us. Similar to how I require my students' attention, God is asking for our attention. How do we acknowledge that God has our attention? In my classroom, one way that I know my students are paying attention is through discussions with them about the topic we are studying. This can also be applied to our relationship with and attention to God.
We talk to or have a discussion with God through prayer, so we could say that we need to "pray attention!" When we pray attention to God it should be a combination of speaking to God and listening to what He has in store for each of us! Take time to pray attention each and every day by talking to God, listening to God, and acting on all of His teachings!
Thank You for being patient with me even when I lose focus and attention. Please help me to "pray attention" to You and Your plan for me. Thank You for allowing me to talk to You and help me to hear and heed Your direction and teaching. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
