Default PRAYING VERSUS ACTING
The following advice is from a prayer book:

"Pray as if everything depended upon God, act as if everything depended on you."

I think that this is consistent with the idea of NOMA, formulated by the biologist Stephen Gould. We exist in the material world; God exists in the spiritual world.

The context in which the idea of NOMA was formulated is summarized in my article about futile conflicts between theists and atheists:

atheist
Ludwik Kowalski (see Wikipedia), author of “Diary of a Former Communist: Thoughts, Feelings, Reality.”

This free on-line autobiography is based on a diary kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).
