I asked GOD for wisdom, and He gave me problems to solve.
I asked GOD for prosperity, and He gave me brains and hands to work with.
I asked GOD for courage, and He gave me obstacles to overcome.
I asked GOD for love, and He gave me troubled people for me to help.
I asked GOD for favours, and He gave me opportunities after opportunities.
I received nothing what i really wanted...BUT...I received everything I wanted.
This prayer reminds me how our limited mind cannot truly appreciate the favors of Beloved God who is bestowing His unlimited Grace on us every single moment. All ours prayers are heard and replied (sometime in many unexpected ways), yet we so often fail to realize this.
