The Difference Prayer Makes

While sitting on my deck early this morning and feeling overwhelmed, this prayer said out loud helped me breathe evenly again. Prayer is the one daily ritual I practice that keeps me above my circumstances

The Difference–by Grace L Naessensimage

” 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 in 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.”
– Grace L. Naessens
