A Prayer To God...

Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid (as we're inclined to do) 
I do not need a handsome man But let him be like You; 

I do not need one big and strong Nor yet so very tall,
Nor need he be some genius Or wealthy, Lord, at all; 

But let his head be high, dear God, And let his eye be clear,
His shoulders straight, whate'er his state, Whate'er his earthly sphere;

And let his face have character, A ruggedness of soul,
And let his whole life show, dear God, A singleness of goal;

Then when he comes (as he will come) With quiet eyes aglow, 
I'll understand that he's the man I prayed for long ago.

May we all pray this prayer for our future husbands!
