The Difference a Prayer Makes

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 tumbed 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 to 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.
