Prayer for the Day

The Prayer of An Unknown Confederate Soldier

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.
