What I Asked For…

I asked for strength –
and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom –
and God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity –
and God gave me a brain and brawn to work.
I asked for courage –
and God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for love –
and God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted –
I received everthing I needed.
My prayer has been answered.

From the family of Michael Job, an Indian Christian medical student who was killed in June of 1999 because of his father’s evengelistic activities
