Martha's faith is really unshakeable, even though she is suffering the loss of her brother. Her faith in Christ is set, regardless of what may come - but it doesn't mean she doesn't suffer, or worry, or call out to Him in prayer. That's exactly what each of us needs to see in her as a model of faith. That our faith in Christ, especially at this time, is adamant, is solid, and we need not worry or fear about anything, even death. If the Lord desires sickness and death in the world, then it will come. If He desires it of His holy children, then it will come. If He wants to heal us of it, He will heal us. But regardless, our faith is in Him.
