Take 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 have time to pray.

 Problems came tumbling 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, grey 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 kindly 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.

(Addie Dodds)
