Goodbye, Aggravation

Frustrated, discouraged?
tangled in life’s frantic maze?
There’s someone who can help you
through those aggravating days.

There’s no busy secretary,
no answering machine,
no forms to file in triplicate,
no CLOSED sign to be seen.

There’s no lack, no rationing,
no standing in line;
no waiting your turn or
“just ran out” of things Divine.

No computer that is down;
no busy signal to hear.
God Himself hears every prayer,
He’s not far off, but very near.

No putting you on hold,
no irregulars or second best;
with our Father there’s no need
to postpone your request.

No ritual is required,
no demanded formality;
prayer is an altogether
wondrous reality.

God already sees and knows,
but still He invites you to come.
Talk to Him about anything,
anytime until you’re done.

Say: “Good-bye, aggravation!”
trust God to get you through.
Listen to His Word today,
He really cares for you!
