Prayer for Health, Wisdom and a Sense of Humor

A photo of a girl on a snow sled

O Lord,
give me a good digestion
as well as something to digest.
Give me health of body
as well as the sense to keep it healthy.
Give me a holy soul,
O Lord,
which keeps its eyes on beauty and purity,
so that it will not be afraid on seeing sin.

Give me a soul that knows nothing
of boredom, groans, and sighs.
Never let me be overly concerned
for this inconstant thing that I call me.
give me a sense of humor,
so that I may take some happiness
from this life,
and share it with others.

– Thomas More
