Prayer by Eliza M Hickok
I know not by what methods rare,
but his I know, God answers prayer,
I know that he has given his word
which tells me prayers are alwayrs heard,
And will be answered soon or late,
And so I pray and calmly wait.
I know not if the blessings sought
Will come in just the way I thought,
But leave my prayers with him alone,
Whose Will is Wiser than my own.
Assured that he will grant my quest,
Or send some answer far more blessed.
