A Soldier's Prayer

I found this prayer in today's Dallas Morning News.

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 that I had hoped for,
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men most richly blessed.

Many thanks to Jones Audiology & Hearing Centers for sponsoring this Memorial Day message.

Please thank our veterans of all wars for their sacrifice so that our "unspoken prayers" may be answered.
