You have to be a parent to have experienced this, or something like it!
I was trying very hard to concentrate on Morning Prayer today, as Little Brother was engrossed in an early-morning screening of a “Veggie Tales” video.
It’s extremely difficult to concentrate on a psalm while you listen to produce warbling, “There’s a hole in the bottom of the sea….”
I don’t recommend that you try this method of enhancing your Prayer Experience. But if you’re a parent, sometimes it’s the only way to go. There’ll be more than enough quiet later.
