A Beautiful Prayer



I asked God to take away my pain.

God said, No.

It is not for me to take it away, but for you to give it all up.


I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.

God said, No.

His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.


I asked God to grant me patience.

God said, No.

Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it is learned.


I asked God to give me happiness.

God said, No.

Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.


I asked God to make my spirit grow.

God said, No.

You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.


I asked God for all things that I might enjoy in life.

God said, No.

I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.


I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.

God said, Aahh, finally you have the idea.
