Take Time To Pray
Most of the commercials, or ads we view on
television today are quite ridiculous. Many of them
don't even pertain to the product to which they are
promoting. This brought to mind, the old black and white
TV ads of decades ago, and this one particular ad I saw

Perhaps several years ago, there was a television

May prayer be your key in the morning,
and the bolt on your door at night;
May He hear your supplication,
Morning, Noon and Night.
