To Pray is to Let Go

“What would I rather being doing, I ask myself—worrying or praying? I usually choose praying. It is a lot more fun than worrying.

To pray is to let go of your belief that you are in control of your life, and to give it over to something more inclusive than your own point of view. It requires a leap of faith. Even if you have only the slightest sense that a higher power is at work in the world, you can still pray.”
