Prayer

I got up early one morning

  • And rushed right into the day.
  • I had so much work to accomplish
  • That I didn't have time to pray.

Problems came tumbling about me

  • And heavier came every task.
  • "Why doesn't God help me?" I wondered.
  • He answered, "But you didn't ask."

I wanted to see joy and beauty

  • But the day dragged on, sadly and bleak.
  • I wondered why God didn't show me.
  • He said, "But you didn't seek."

I tried to come into God's presence.

  • I used all the keys at the lock.
  • God gently and lovingly chided,
  • "My child, but you didn't knock."

So I woke up early this morning,

  • And paused before entering the day.
  • I had so much work to accomplish,
  • That I had to take time to pray.
