I got up early this 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 turned out 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 in 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 to accomplish,

that I just had to take time to pray.
