I got up early one morning, 

And rushed right into the day; 

I had so much to accomplish.

That i didnt 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 didnt 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 at 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.

Prayer is not asking, prayer is putting one self in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our heartsMother Teresa

We have to pray with our eyes on God not on our difficulties.
