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 just tumbled about me and heavier came each task.
“Why doesn’t Yahweh help me,” I wondered. He said,“You didn't ask.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why Yahweh didn't show me. He said, “You didn't seek.”
I tried to come into His presence; I used all the keys in the lock.
Yahweh 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.
