Prayer by an Unknown Confederate Soldier

The pray-er of this now-famous prayer might be unknown; but the truth of its content, many of us must be quite familiar with. At least I know I am.

That’s Anyele, my dear wife. She’s the best for me, for sure! She’s an answer to prayers prayed and those I didn’t even know to ask! “Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among all people, most richly blessed.”

 

“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 others,  I  was given weakness, that I might feel the need for God.

I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life, I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

I got nothing that I asked for — but everything that I had hoped for.

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.

I am, among all people, most richly blessed.”
