Exodus 17:8-13; Psalms 121:1-8; II Timothy 3:14-4:2; Luke 18:1-8
In a little book about children and religion, actor Dick Van Dyke tells the story of a little girl who is asked by her mother if she has said her night prayers. “Yes, mother,” she replied, “but when I knelt down, I began thinking that God hears the same old stuff every night … So I told him the story of the three bears instead.”
Van Dyke tells of another little girl who was asked to suggest a prayer for her Sunday School class. She said, “I think we should pray for all the people with the blahs!”
An anonymous poet has written:
I rose one morning early,
and rushed into the fray.
With so much to accomplish,
I had no time to pray.
Troubles tumbled ’round me,
and heavy was each task.
But where was God to help me?
God said, “You didn’t ask.”
I tried to see the bright side,
but things turned grey and bleak.
