Unspoken Prayers

Someone once said the stomach is the only part of us that can be fully satisfied. The rest is an appetite that cannot be appeased. But listen to these words written by a soldier facing battle: ‘I asked God for strength that I might achieve, and I was made weak that I might learn to obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things, and I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy, and I was given poverty that I might be wise. I asked for power that I might have the praise of men, and I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life, and I was given life that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing I asked for, but everything I hoped for; and despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.’
