In Gethsemane the holiest of all petitioners prayed three times that a certain cup might pass from Him. It did not. After that the idea that prayer is recommended to us as a sort of infallible gimmick may be dismissed. Author: C.S. Lewis


 
I prayed that God would heal my affliction
His answer was that I should endure my physical condition
 
For the son of God suffered pain and misery
To purchase forgiveness for you and me
 
Therefore I may ask once to let this cup pass me by
If his answer is ‘no’ I will accept it with a sigh
 
My Lord knows what it is that I have need of
So I will share his suffering for I know his love
 
Jesus hung upon a cross to carry away my burden of sin
Now he stands at Heavens’ gate and beckons me, “Come in”
 
This is why I will endure life’s woes and discomforts
So my prayers are simply asking for Gods son’s support
 
He knows my every care and affliction
So I will accept them and pray for my salvation
 
For his love is stronger than any feelings of despair
And I will call on him for courage for I know he is always there

Lew,

God IS always there during difficult times and good times. Often when I pray His answer is also 'no' but I realize theres a reason for that no. One glorious day we will understand. Love and blessings to you.

Acceptance is often a marvelous thing.
