My Journey to God

Time to Pray

It is not difficult to pray
When we are faced with fears
Or when the shadows climb the walls
And tragedy appears.
Our voices rise above the roar
Of every raging sea
And words of sudden truth
Present our tearful plea.
But when there is no storm
And when we have a perfect day,
We seldom turn our thoughts to God
Or take the time to pray.
And if it is a task
Then it is also a duty
To thank him or let him know
The miracles we ask.
And yet a daily prayer to God
Is such a little thing
Compared to all the comforts and
The blessing it can bring.
