I Didn't Have Time To Pray - Poetry Break

I heard this poem many, many years ago and it has always stuck with me.

I Didn't Have Time

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 tried to come into God's presence;
I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
"Why, child, you didn't knock!"

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 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!

  1. Well, if Hillary is prez, you wont have time for much of anything besides bowingNscraping before the gods of moolah and power. STOP following the whorizontal LEFT, Amerikkka.

    1. This is NOT a political blog. If you search it, you will see I have NO political posts. This post is about taking time in your life to pray. It is not about hate or politics.

      What is the matter with you? You should be ashamed of yourself. Perhaps if you took more time to pray instead of posting about hate, your life would be more content.
