A whimsical little prayer ...

Source: unknown (found in this book)

Give us, Lord, a bit o' sun,
A bit o' work and a bit o' fun.
Give us all in th' struggle and splutter
Our daily bread and a bit o' butter.

Give us health, our keep to make,
An' a bit of spare for poor folks' sake.
Give us sense, for we are some of us duffers,
An' a heart to feel for all that suffers.

Each day is a little life, each night a little death ...

"Our Father, each day is a little life, each night a tiny death; help us to live with faith and hope and love. 

Lift our duty above drudgery; let not our strength fail, or the vision fade, in the heat and burden of the day.

O God, make us patient … one with another in the fret and jar of life, remembering that each one of us fights a hard fight and walks a lonely way.

Forgive us, Lord, if we hurt our fellow souls; teach us a gentler tone, a sweeter charity of words, and a more healing touch. 

Sustain us, O God, when we must face sorrow; give us courage for the day and hope for the morrow.  Day unto day may we lay hold of thy hand and look up into thy face, whatever befall, until our work is finished and the day is done.  Amen." 

~Francis of Assisi (1181-1226)
