A PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

Common Sense Prayer

Give me a good digestion, Lord,
And something to digest.
Give me a healthy body, Lord,
And sense to keep it at its best.
Give me a healthy mind, O Lord,
to keep the good and pure in sight,
Which seeing sin is not appalled
But finds a way to put it right.
Give me a mind that is not bored
That does not whimper, whine or sigh
Don’t let me worry over much about
This funny thing called I.
Give me a sense of humour, Lord,
The grace to see a joke,
To get some happiness from life and
Pass it on the other folk.
