Time to Pray

I got up early one morning 
And rushed right into the day; 
I had so much to accomplish 
That I didn’t take 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 accomplish 
That I had to take time to pray.
