Sometimes when I want to focus on a certain point in a scene
the focal point wanders. Is there a way to just pic a focal
point and lock the camera on that point?

See the "focus" section in your manual starting on page 91, specifically page 96. "Auto-area" is probably the one setting you do NOT want.
