I’m looking for ideas to help me to keep my mind on my devotion as I pray the rosary. I seem able to think of other things on one brainwave while praying on another! Literally. Even if I pray aloud, I can think about my kids or friends, or the upcoming weekend while continuing with my oral recitation. Then, I start the prayer over and try again, but I would like to improve.
I try to meditate on the mystery and to go somewhere which has very few distractions, but, I just can’t seem to get through a single prayer without stumbling.
I am not feeling overly scrupulous here. I know that the Blessed Mother appreciates the prayers and my persistent effort to stay connected to the devotion. I would just like to have a better experience in my prayer with Mary.
