"Build Me a Son" by Douglas A. MacArthur

Oh Lord,

Who will be strong enough to know when he is weak,
and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid;
one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat,
and humble and gentle in victory.
Build me a son whose wish bone will not be where his backbone should be;
a son who will know Thee and that to know himself is the foundation stone
to knowledge.
