Our devices hold power over our attention. Social media, e-mails, and texts replace eye contact and face-to-face conversation. We miss our kids’ “notifications” that signal their need for attention. We pass up close contact and affection as we seek validation from others online.
Turn our eyes from our screens and place them on you. Let us meditate on your Word. Teach us to pray all the time. Give us self control to unplug and devote ourselves to one another. Focus our minds and hearts where they belong.
