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 a coward,
feeling your mercy in my success alone,
but let me feel the grasp of your hand in my failure
