New Year’s 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 be not 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.
