Time For A Prayer


We have so many minutes and... so many hours too...In
which we may accomplish all...The things we want to do...
That certainly there ought to be... sufficient time to spare...
To think about almighty God... And say a little prayer... We
rest at home and go to shows... Or entertain a friend... And
many are the greeting cards... And packages we send... We
eat when we are hungry and... We sleep when we need rest
... And in the circle of our wealth... We buy the very best...
And so the least that we can do... Is go to church today...
And give our gratitude to God... By taking time to pray.
