How God answers our prayers

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve,

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

I asked for health that I might do greater things,

I was given illness, 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 in spite of myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.

I am among all people, most richly blessed.

“I made 3 wises in churches I visited for the first time. And each time, I wished to have a a successful marriage with your Papa.”

I seriously wonder what God did with my mom’s earnest wish.
More tears are shed over answered prayers
than unanswered ones.
