If you do all the following pre-talking to God prep, it will help you to make sure your 'Talking to God' session won't get derailed before you've even begun. Practically, that means you need to:
- Go somewhere you can be by yourself - It's hard to start talking to God when everyone is staring at you and making 'crazy person' gestures with their hands.
- Turn off your cell phone - Just like you can't talk to your boss and your best friend at the same time (unless your best friend happens to be employing you...) God also requires your full attention.
- Go to the bathroom before you begin - This sounds obvious, but it's a shame to have cut a talking to God session short just because you really need a wee.
- Make sure you've eaten something, so your stomach doesn't start growling and then your session gets side-tracked by thoughts of food - Whatever 'munchies' you usually get, make sure you ate the chocolate / Snickers / cookies / burger BEFORE you start talking to God, if you want to avoid a Homer Simpson moment.
