Difficulty concentrating while reading

Reading can be difficult for people, but the good news is that the Bible is different from reading other books. Something very special occurs when we reach out to God by reading His words to us. While many books are helpful, the Bible can literally change your life.

God wants you to be successful in your reading and your understanding of what you read. When you find you are losing interest or your mind wanders during reading, ask God to help you to concentrate and to comprehend what you are reading.

If outside sources are the cause of difficulty in concentration, try to find a place and a time to read where you will not be distracted, and ask for God's help in determining what these are.
