A Collect for Focus
'And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving.' - Luke 10:39-40 (ESV)
Patient Father, who knows our scattered minds and anxious hearts, we are distracted by many things and feel pressured and torn by all that we must accomplish and the many things we desire. Help us to set aside the distractions and things that are unimportant that we might have the space to focus on what is needful and good for our souls and your desires for your creation, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in glory. Amen.
