Lay aside your worries


In that teaching on prayer he tells us: Don’t worry and be anxious at the time of prayer. Lay aside your worries. Don’t be worrying about what you are to eat or what you are to wear. These are the things for the pagans to become obsessed by. He is not saying we shouldn’t be concerned. Or especially he’s not saying we shouldn’t be concerned if there are others who are hungry or needy; we should come to their aid. But he says, at the time of prayer we don’t just think about our problems and obsess about our anxieties. At the time of prayer we are awakening to the beauty of holiness, to the beauty of our own being.
