I Asked God for Strength Poem and Prayer

Prayer of the Unknown Soldier

The Prayer of an Unknown Confederate Soldier

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 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 riches that I might be happy. I was given poverty that I might be wise. Click To Tweet

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

I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.

I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. I was given life that I might enjoy all things. Click To Tweet

I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for.

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.

I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among all men, most richly blessed. Click To Tweet
