To the Editor,

In this world of darkness, in this present evil world all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way.

I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me stronger. I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve. I asked for prosperity and God gave me a brain and energy to work. I asked for courage and God gave me danger to overcome. I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help.

I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities. I received nothing I wanted but I received what I needed.

James Waddle,
