Tunnel Vision


"Be careful what you pray for" is how I've heard it told.

Your prayer just might be answered with a hand you want to fold.

Too bad I'm hard of hearing, and hard-headed, yes, to boot.

Sometimes my best ideas are like weeds of endless root.

I have learned this lesson from that school of old hard knocks...

I only pray for God's Will, now, keeping "self-will" in the box.

See, this is what I figure, from the lessons I have learned,

Mine is tunnel vision tainted by that which I yearn.

Any situation revolves around much more than me.

Yes, involving a greater picture than my eyes can ever see.

Selfish prayers are dangerous and seldom satisfy...

So I'm careful what I pray for, now you know the reason why!
