Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
-James 4:3

Soldiers Prayer

      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 do better things.
      I asked for riches, that I might be happy,
             I was given poverty, that I might be wise.
      I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men,
             I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.
      I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life,
             I was given life, that I might enjoy all things.
      I got nothing I asked for --
             but everything I had hoped for.
      Almost, inspite myself, my
             unspoken prayers were answered.
      I am, among all men,
             most richly blessed.
