"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!
