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 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 everything I needed.
My prayer has been answered.
~ Excerpt from Extreme Devotion by Voice of the Martyrs ~
FROM THE FAMILY OF MICHAEL JOB, AN INDIAN MEDICAL STUDENT KILLED IN JUNE OF 1999 BECAUSE OF HIS FATHER'S EVANGELISTIC ACTIVITIES.
Thanking God for answered prayer today,
