New Year Prayer

New Year Prayer 

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 humour.

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.
