(1)   A confederate soldier's prayer during U.S. Civil War (1861-65):   (website:   http://www.historyaddict.com/CSPrayer.html)

Prayers from the Confederacy


A Christian Confederate Soldier's Prayer
(Anon - alleged  to have been found on a CSA casualty at the Devil's Den, Gettysburg)


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 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 got nothing that I asked for but got everything I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.

I am, among all people, most richly blessed.

Dukh mei sumiran sab kare, Sukh mei kare na koye
Jo Sukh mei sumiran kare, toh Dukh kaahe ko hoye.

I am not sure if I have remembered God, unless debating about God/Truth, but whenever I have found myself in deep pain, I have turned to God, without questioning Him/Her/Whoever.

Regards,
TS.
