Why is it so hard?

Why is it is so hard to pray?
When I know that I need the filling of the Holy Spirit
each day to give me strength.
Gve me strength to walk with integrity.
Love my children with out yelling.
Strength to think thru dififcult situations
and make decisions which affect our future.

I have time to drink a second cup of coffee.
Pull out the vacuum cleaner
to suck up the playdough before it gets into the carpet.
TIme to call a friend,
eat a piece of chocolate,
buy a new top.

But not time to pray.

When I know that He fillls me with peace
A peace I cannot buy at the store,
bake in the oven,
Hear from another.
He empowers me to love the ugly,
instruct my children,
go where it's unknown.
Sustain me.

Why is it so hard to pray?

Give me an undivided heart, O Lord.
That I may seek Your Face each day.
