A prayer for my new friends on Senior Chatters

”Dear Lord,

Help me to relax about insignificant details, beginning tomorrow at 7:41:23 a.m. EST.
Help me to consider people’s feelings, even if most of them are hypersensitive.
Help me to take responsibility for the consequences of my actions, even though they’re usually not my fault.
Help me to not try to run everything – but, if you need some help, please feel free to ask me.
Help me to be more laid back, and help me to do it exactly right.
Help me to take things more seriously, especially laughter, parties, and dancing.
Give me patience, and I mean right now!
Help me not be a perfectionist. (Did I spell that correctly?)
Help me to finish everything I sta
Help me to keep my mind on one thing … oh, look, a bird … at a time.
Help me to do only what I can, and trust you for the rest. And would you mind putting that in writing?
Keep me open to others’ ideas, misguided though they may be.
Help me follow established procedures. Hey, wait … this is wrong …
Help me slow down andnotrushthroughwhatido.
Thank you, Lord.
Amen ”
