Paradoxes of Prayer

I asked God for strength,
          That I might achieve
     I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey…

I asked God for health,
          That I might do greater things
     I was given infirmity, that I might do better things…

I asked God for riches,
          That I might be happy
     I was given poverty that I might be wise…

I asked God for power,
          That I might have the praise of men
     I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God…

I asked God 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 most richly blessed!
