I do not ask that I will always have abundance,
But that when I am in need, there will always
be Your supply,
And that when I have plenty, I can help those
who are in want.
I do not ask that I will always enjoy good health,
But that when I am sick I may receive
Your healing touch,
And when in good health I may serve You the more.
I do not ask that I will always know success,
But that when I meet failure I may know
And that in success I may give the glory to You.
I do not ask that I will know unending happiness,
But that when sorrow comes I may receive
And when I am joy I will not forget the Source.
I do not ask for perpetual, unending peace,
But that in trial I may know Your presence with me,
And in tranquility I may be more willing to seek
I do not ask that all I pray for will be granted,
But I ask You to hear each request I make.
Make me aware that each time You grant what I ask
it is by Your mercy,
And when my prayer is not granted I can taste more
fully of Your gracious will.
