“…and fitting me to accept it.”

valleyofvisionFrom a prayer of confession in The Valley of Vision:

I thank thee that many of my prayers
have been refused —
I have asked amiss and do not have,
I have prayed from lusts and been rejected,
I have longed for Egypt and been given a wilderness.

Go on with thy patient work,
answering ‘no’ to my wrongful prayers,
and fitting me to accept it.

so what do you think?
