How to stop a wondering mind

My mind is always wondering.  I do one thing and at the same time I'm thinking of another thing.  Some times I wish I wouldn't do that.  Times like when I'm trying to fall asleep or when I'm praying and try to wait to hear from God.

I've been waiting to hear from God about a very important situation I'm going through right now.  When something happens I think that's a sign but then I second guess myself and wonder if it is really a sign.  This morning when I started to wake up, I felt myself starting to worry about my situation.  I thought this is not how I want to start my day Lord.  My mind started to wonder about a few other things, then I heard a voice that said, "What do you want?"  I said what I wanted.  Then I thought was that God talking to me?  If so, I want to hear more about what he has to say.  Then I started to feel like I was coming out of it(what ever it was).  I kept trying to go back to it but couldn't.  Then I thought if it was God why did I tell him only that one thing, when there was so much more connected to that one thing?  My God is a BIG God, he can handle the whole situation plus some.  Of course, I then started second guessing myself, was that really God or was it just my mind wondering so fast everything kind of overlapped, like in a dream.  What do you think?

I also have a hard time praying without my mind wondering.  It's not that I don't want to concentrate on just the Lord, I just don't know how to get my mind to stop thinking about everything else that's going on.  So how do you stop your mind from wondering while praying?
