No Time to Pray

Source unknown

I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;I had so much to accomplish that I didn't have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task."Why doesn't God help me?" I wondered. He answered, "You didn't ask."

I wanted to see joy and beauty,but the day toiled on, gray 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 my keys at the lock.God gently and lovingly chided,"My child, you didn't knock."

I woke up early this morning,and paused before entering the day;I had so much to accomplishthat I had to take time to pray.
