Martha's Prayer

Lord, make me a Mary, reverent and meek.

Instead of approval from others, let it be your's that I seek.

When I take on too much and my plate's full to the brim

Remind me that my cup can only filled by Him.

Let me not indulge in riches, help me realize that my worth,

Is found only through your love for me, not the treasures of this Earth.

Calm my anxious spirit, Lord, help me commune with you each day.

Open my eyes to see my priorities when "to-do" lists get in the way.

When this world keeps me from seeking you, put blinders on my eyes.

Keep my gaze toward the Heavens and my eyes on the true prize.

Lord, make me a Mary, reverent and meek.

Instead of approval from others, let it be your's only that I seek.

Amen
