Creed for Grateful Sufferers

I've Been Truly 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 great 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 become wise.

I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men.

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 I had hoped for.

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers and true needs were fulfilled.

I am, among men, most richly blessed.
