I OFFERED A PRAYER TO GOD

I asked for strength.
God gave me difficulties to make me
strong.

I asked for wisdom.
God gave me problems to solve.

I asked for prosperity.
God gave me brawn and brain to
work.

I asked for courage.
God gave me dangers to overcome.

I asked for patience.
God placed me in situations where I
was forced to wait.

I asked for love.
God gave me troubled people to help.

I asked for favors.
God gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed.

Today is the last day of your
life........so far.

AND GOD SAID NO

I asked God to take away my pride,
And God said "NO"
He said it was not for him to take
away
But for me to give up

I asked God to make my
handicapped child whole,
And God said "NO"
He said her spirit is whole
Her body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience,
And God said "NO".
He said that patience is a byproduct
of tribulation,
It isn't granted, it is earned.

I asked God to give me happiness,
And God said "No"
He said He gives blessings,
Happiness is up to me.

I asked God to spare me pain,
And God said "NO"
He said, "Suffering draws you apart
from worldly
cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit
grow
And God said "No"
He said I must grow on my own,
But he will prune me to make me
fruitful.

I asked God to help me love others
As much as He loves me,
And God said, "Ah, finally you
have the idea."
