I Asked And I Was Given


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 grow in understanding
And become a better human being through bringing forth from within
The Divine qualities of kindness and compassion with all life.

I asked for riches, that I might be happy;
I was given poverty, that I might become wise;
I asked for power, that I might be praised by people;
I was given weakness, that I might feel my need for 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 really needed.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
And my life is now filled with blessings.
