Prayer for Bad Events

Shavua Tov, a good week from the Holy Land!

A tradition from the Baal Shem Tov says this brief tefilah (prayer) was composed by him for his talmidim to say when bad befell them…

“I know that the bad too is for good.  But You are G-d and not a human being and can turn bad to good.  May everything, then, be not the kind of good that is concealed from our understanding, but revealed good, so that what needs fixing will be accomplished through good itself.”

there is alot of discussion now about thanking Hashem for everything..even the seemingly bad because Hashem is only good and does only good. this post is very interesting and merits a longer discussion in light of that idea, if possible?
