Key lock on my 2003 honda civic does not work on drv door

As of last night when trying to open door with key... all of a sudden the key seems as if it is not the correct key to open door. It will not go into the lock and seems stiff or frozen when trying to push it in further and will not turn in either direction. Do you think that by spraying graphite into the lock on the outside can help this problem temporarily? The key does work on the passenger side. I've tried to use the valet key (gray) and it worked two times but it now is acting as the master key (black) does when inserting it into the driver door side...it just won't open. Any ideas???

I am afraid they may have attempted to steal your car and thereby damaging the lock.

They get sluggish over time. If you remove them, clean them, and grease them with a light grease; you can probably get them to work again. Ibet they work better when the car is funning, as the voltage is higher from the alternator as compared to the battery.
As for yhe window, you might try some window track lubrication in the tracks. The motor may also be getting tired.

Remove the doro finisher of your door.
Wirth a light, you should see a loose link rod between the key-lock and the door-lock. Just click it back in place.
If it is a zamac lock link, that's broken, you should replace the system
