TRUE PRAYER
 
            I asked God to take away my pride. God said, “No. It is
not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.”
 
            I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. God said,
“No. Her spirit is whole, her body is only temporary.”
 
            I asked God to grant me patience. God said, “No. Patience
is a by-product of tribula­tions; it isn’t granted, it is earned.”
 
            I asked God to give me happiness. God said, “No. I give
you blessings, happiness is up to you.”
 
            I asked God to spare me pain. 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 for all things that I might enjoy 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 God loves
me. God said… “Ahhhh, finally you have the idea!” (Author unknown)
