I Prayed, All Unafraid

“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.”
~ Ruth Bell Graham,
Philanthropist, Poet, Author & Painter
