ON PROBLEMS AND PRAYERS

If you have a problem in your life that you can’t fathom or understand, you have to examine your prayer life, not the problem.
The Difference

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.

REMEMBER: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7: 7).

God bless and keep you!
