SOLDIERS PRAYER


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 I asked for --
	but everything I had hoped for.
Almost, inspite myself, my
	unspoken prayers were answered.
I am, among all men,
 most richly blessed.

James 4:3
