Some people have asked for a copy of the Sufi poem I read during Bible Study. Here you go. This Sufi poem has been attributed to Hazrat Inayat Khan:


I asked for strength,
And God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom,
And God gave me problems to learn to solve.
I asked for prosperity,
And God gave me a brain and brawn to work.
I asked for courage,
And God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for love,
And God gave me people to help.
I asked for favors,
And God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed.
