A Zen Prayer

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 troubled people to help;
I asked for favour,
And God gave me opportunities;
I received nothing I wanted,
But everything I needed;
My prayer has been answered.
