Prayer: A New Year's Prayer

Dear Lord, please give me
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value, without which the world would be the
         poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail not be blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things, with the wisdom to
recognize them when they come.

Amen.
