Leave Your Thoughts At The Door

“Leave at the door of the place where you are going to converse with God all extraneous thoughts, saying, with St. Bernard, “O my thoughts, wait here. After prayer we shall speak about other matters.”

                                                                           St. Alphonsus Liguori

For Reflection: 

How can the strategy offered by St. Alphonsus Liguori help me as I enter into prayer? In what practical ways can I change my environment to make sure I can leave my thoughts “at the door of the place” where I pray?
