A Christian is a mind through which Christ thinks,
A heart through which Christ loves, a voice
through which Christ speaks, and a 
hand through which Christ helps.


I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day,
I had so much to accomplish
That I didn’t take time to pray,

Problems just tumbled about me,
And heavier became 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 got up early this morning
and paused before entering the day.
I had so much to accomplish
that I had to take time to pray.

The sun was especially shiny
The sky was especially blue,
The clouds were all white and foamy,
I think I saw God peeking through.

I tried to behave as a child would,
When it’s mother is watching it play.
Cause, God had his eyes on me,
This morning I remembered to pray.
