Grant me

by thebeautifulpeopleblog


Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be

fearless in facing them.

Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the

heart to conquer it.

Let me not look for allies in life’s battlefield but to

my own strength.

Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but

hope for the patience to win my freedom.

Grant me that I may not be coward, feeling your mercy

in my success alone; but let me find the

grasp of your hand in my failure.

Rabindranath Tagore
