Sometimes the Answer is No

Pray for healing,
          Pray for peace,
                    Pray for understanding.
Pray with fervor for His favor,
But pray without demanding.

Pray for blessings,
          Pray with thanks,
                    Pray to know God’s grace.
Pray that every heart may know
The warmth of His embrace.

Trials and temptations are but
Bitter weeds that all must taste,
But the guidance from a simple prayer
Can quell decisions made in haste.

For all may hope and
          All may pray
As surely as the winds may blow,
And every prayer is heard and answered,
Often, “Yes,”
          But sometimes, “No.”
