Morning Prayer

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 wanted to see joy and beauty
but the day toiled on gray and bleak,
I wondered, "Why doesn't God show me?"
He said, "You didn't seek."
I tried to come into God’s presence
I used all my keys at the lock,
God gently and lovingly chided "My child, you didn't knock."
I woke up early this morning
and paused before starting the day,
I had so much to accomplish
that I had to take time to pray.

"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
Luke 11:9-10
