A New Year’s 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 humor;
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.
— W.R. Hunt
