Dear Lord, please give me...
A few friends who understand me
And yet remain my friends
A work to do which has real value,
Without which the world
Would feel the poorer...
A mind unafraid to travel,
Even though the trail be not blazed
An understanding heart...
A sense of humor.
Time for quiet, silent meditation.
A feeling of the presence of God.
And the patience to wait
For the coming of these things,
With the wisdom to know them
When they come.
