Choose What is Better

When I’m worried and distracted, like Martha was, here’s how I pray: “Lord, help me with this. Help me with that. Change this situation. Do something about that.”

When I sit at the Lord’s feet listening, as Mary did, I pray like this: “Lord, God Almighty, you are good. You are powerful and loving and wise. I trust you to do what is best.”
Don’t be anxious when you pray. Instead, think about who God is and what He does. That’s the better way to pray.
