Unasnwered Prayer

He asked for strength that he might achieve;
he was made weak  that he might obey.


He asked for health that he might do greater things;

he was given infirmity that he might do better things.


He asked for riches that he might be happy;
he was given poverty that he might be wise.

He asked for power that he might ave the praise of men;
he was given weakness that he might feel the need of God.

He asked for all things that he might enjoy life;
he was given Life that he might enjoy all things.

He has received nothing that he asked for, all that he hoped for. His prayer is answered.
He is most blessed.
