A Prayer for Today

In my notebook of prayers, I found this favorite today.
The author is unknown.

I Said A Prayer For You Today

I said a prayer for you today,
and know God must have heard;
I felt the answer in my heart,
altho He spoke no word.

I didn't ask for wealth or fame,
I knew you wouldn't mind;
I asked Him to send treasure
Of a far more lasting kind.

I asked that He'd be near you
at the start of each new day;
To grant you health and blessings
and friends to share your way.

I asked for happiness for you,
in all things great and small;
But it was for his loving care,
I prayed for most of all.
