A Prayer

Dear God,

So far today,
I've done all right.
I haven't gossiped,
I haven't lost my temper,
I haven't been greedy, grumpy,
nasty, selfish or overindulgent.

I'm very thankful for that.

But, in a few minutes, God,
I'm going to get out of bed;
And from then on, I'm probably
going to need a lot more help.
