Today we will be engaging ourselves in prayer points against distraction. Distraction is a very dangerous gimmick of the enemy to make a man lose focus of their goal in pursuit of success. There are so many people who were destined for success in life that won’t be able to achieve their potentials because one of the stumbling blocks the enemy will put in their way is a distraction. The funny thing is that many times, people won’t be able to identify distractions when they encounter one because many times, the distraction could come in the form of what is needed at that time.
The wife of Potiphar’s wife was a significant distraction in the life of Joseph. If Joseph had not made a conscious effort to do away with it, there is a possibility that he would not have been able to accomplish what was destined for him. Meanwhile, at that time, Joseph could decide to dance to the tune of Potiphar’s wife because she could guarantee his safety and even facilitate his quick elevation being the wife of his master. However, Joseph was able to identify that it was not part of God’s plan for his life, so he took to his heels.
While Joseph successfully overcame the distraction put in his way by the enemy, there is one other person in the Bible who could not overcome distraction. Esau could have paid less attention to the demand of his stomach and set his gaze on becoming a great man, but his hunger, which was a significant distraction in his life, got the best of him, and he fell victim. Right there and then, he exchanged his birthright for a pot of pottage.
To overcome distraction, it deals with identifying it through a conscious effort and the help of the Holy Spirit and also discipline. If Jacob had not disciplined himself, he would have fell victim to the bosom of his master’s wife, and that would have hindered the plans of God for his life. Similarly, in our lives, there are a couple of times that we face distractions, it could be a failure in work or academic, it could be anything, it could be women or different kind of men coming our way, we must identify them and deal with them. I pray that the spirit of God that will help us identify distraction when we encounter one come upon us right now in the name of Jesus. As you begin to study this prayer points against distraction, may God send distraction far away from your way in the name of Jesus.

- The book of Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. I pray that no temptation shall overcome me in the name of Jesus. I pray that you will grant me the strength to subdue any temptation that may come my way at the point of success in the name of Jesus.
- I come against every urge to drink or smoke in the name of Jesus. Every plan and agenda of the enemy to distract me with the use of drugs, use of alcohol, or smoking, I render that plan useless in the name of Jesus. Every form of sexual immorality that the devil wants to inflict on me to distract me. I pray that God will destroy such plans in the name of Jesus.
- The scripture of 1 Corinthians 10:12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! I pray that you will grant me the grace to stand with you to the end in the name of Jesus. Every arrow of distraction that is shot at me by the enemy to make me fall out in your presence to let such arrows be destroyed in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, I decree from now, I set my gaze on the cross, I put myself under the tutelage of the Holy Ghost. I pray that the spirit of God, the spirit of divinity, will begin to guide and direct me.
