3 times

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.

 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Many of times, we are only familiar with verse 9 onwards, but often we forget the reason why Paul said it earlier. 

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.

Thorns are there to hurt you temporarily and not kill you.
