I pray for what I think I need,
Overestimating my vote’s power.
Requesting wants in desperation,
No clear vision for what I even desire.
I find when God answers my prayers,
They may overshoot my expected target.
I delight in these unforeseen gifts,
And my faith is strengthened through the harvest.
At other times I question if He heard me right???
As if something was lost in translation.
An element of disappointment for not getting my way.
The results are far from my expectations.
Faith supersedes my human attempts at reasoning,
God knows and works what is best.
Although my prayers are answered, whether altered or denied,
The conclusive reality… Is one in which I’m blessed.
