Do you go to God in prayer when you don’t know what else to do, or do you allow yourself to become overwhelmed with worry and fear?
Scripture tells us about two sisters, Mary and Martha, who were in the middle of a very troubling family situation. Their brother Lazarus, who also happened to be a good friend of Jesus, had become very ill. As a result, Mary and Martha found themselves in a place where they didn’t know what else to do, but they knew where to go.
From Mary and Martha’s pursuit of Jesus, we can learn a lot about how to pray, who to pray with, and the tone and posture that should be associated with our most sincere prayers. Check out this message from Pastor Eric to learn these insights and more.
“A man named Lazarus was sick. He lived in Bethany with his sisters, Mary and Martha. ...So the two sisters sent a message to Jesus telling him, ‘Lord, your dear friend is very sick.’”(John 11:1, 3 NLT )
