I asked God to grant me patience. God said, No. 
Patience is a by product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned. 

I asked God to give me happiness. God said, No. 
I give you blessings. Happiness is up to you. 

I asked God to spare me pain. God said, No. 
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me. 

I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, No. 
You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful. 

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said No. 
I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things. 

I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as God loves me. 
God said... Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
