A Prayer for God’s Best


“I asked God for strength, that I might achieve

I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey …

I asked for health, that I might do greater things

I was given infirmity, that I might do better things …

I asked for riches, that I might be happy

I was given poverty, that I might be wise …

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 all things, that I might enjoy life

I was given life that I might enjoy all things …

I got nothing that I asked for-but everything I had hoped for

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.

I am, among all men, most richly blessed.” –

  1. I’ve seen this before…and it still seems like a very “purple” prayer, indeed!
