Unspoken Prayers!

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey…
I asked for better health, that I might do better things
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things…
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God…
I asked for riches, that I might be happy
I was given poverty, that I might be wise…
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life
I was given life that I might enjoy all things…
I got nothing I asked for
But everything I hoped for…

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered
I, among all men, am most richly blessed!
