Praying Like a Complete Idiot

I bought this book while in line at the supermarket a while back…

Flipping through it, I’ve concluded something: I’d do well–exceedingly well–to pray idiot-prayers like these!

Take this one from Christina Rossetti:

“O Lord, the Lord whose ways are right, keep us in your mercy from lip service and empty forms; from having a name that we live, but being dead.  Help us to worship you by righteous deeds and lives of holiness; that our prayer also may be set forth in your sight as an incense, and the lifting up of our hands be an evening sacrifice.”

So for all the morons out there, I’ll bring you more occasionally so that, yes, even folks like us can learn to pray.
