Just about everybody is busy. Sometimes its hard to remember to prioritize our spiritual lives. I know I struggle with that. 

I haven't heard this poem in many years, but it came unbidden to my mind the other day and I thought I would share it. Hope it's helpful. 

No Time To Pray
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 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.

Have you taken time to pray today?
