Religious Poem

I personally have said that I never have time to pray. I find that as I evaluated my day to day activities, there are plenty of moments in which - I Chose - to do some mundane thing instead of praying.

No Time To Pray

©

Published: November 2014

So many times
I hear people say
"We are so busy,
And have no time to pray."

Yet there we are sitting
In front of the screen,
Texting or playing,
- You know what I mean.

Why is it so hard
To set aside time,
To find solitude
And pray for a sign?

Why do we struggle
With boredom each day?
Yet, not bother taking
Ten minutes to pray?

So many hours
Are wasted each week,
When we could be praying
For the answers we seek.

So let's make a plan
At the start of each day,
To make time for God
And in that time -Pray.
