A Kitchen prayer from the Glastonbury Abbey in England. Here’s what it says, (imagine it written in beautiful calligraphy)
Give me a healthy body, Lord, and also sense to keep it at its best.
Give me a healthy mind, Oh Lord, to keep the good and pure in sight.
Which seeing wrong, is not appalled, but finds a way to put it right.
Give me a mind that is not bored, that does not whimper, whine, or sigh.
Give me a sense of humour, Lord. Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some happiness from life, and pass it on to other folk.”
