This week's episode features Dr. Joel Snider and focuses on Psalm 37:1-6.
I wish could link the referenced video. I failed to bookmark it after viewing one time and could never locate it again. It was a powerful testimony.
Here is the reading referenced near the end. Although described as a prayer, it has always struck that it does not actually speak to God; rather, it describes what the writer has prayed for in the past and the answers received.
A CONFEDERATE SOLDIER'S PRAYER
(Attributed to a battle weary C.S.A soldier near the end of the war)
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 everything I hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men most richly blessed.
