A Confederate Soldier’s Prayer

As I was reading this prayer this morning I was thinking it was written by a Saint or someone like Henri Nouwen.  To my surprise, it was composed by an unnamed Confederate soldier, presumably during the U.S. Civil War 1861-65.

As America seems to be at war with itself again, it is a great prayer I thought worth sharing for its humbleness and hope.
