Prayer for Today


Prayer for today
I asked God for strength, that I might do great things; 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 of praise of men; I was given weakness, that I might feel my need of God. I asked above all things, that I might enjoy life; I was given life,that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing I’d asked for,but everything I’d hoped for; Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered; I am among all men, most richly blessed.
(The words of an unknown Confederate soldier can be seen cast in bronze in the lobby of The Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in New York City)

Thought 4 The Day

To forsake Christ for the world is to leave a treasure for a trifle, eternity for a moment, reality for a shadow, all things for nothing. (W. Jenkins)
