Since I am interested in CyberReligion, I thought I’d post something for all my online readers and friends. Enjoy!
Every night I lie in bed
This little prayer inside my head
God bless my mom and dad
And bless my little children too.
And God there’s just one more thing
I wish that you would do
If you don’t mind me asking,
Would you bless my ‘puter too?
Now I know that it’s not normal
To bless a small machine,
But listen just a second
And I’ll try to explain .
You see, this little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends.
Inside those small components
Rest a hundred loving friends.
Some, it’s true, I’ve never seen,
And most I’ve never met.
We’ve never even shaken hands
Or truly hugged, and yet
I know for sure they love me
By the kindness that they give,
And this little scrap of metal
Is how I get to where they live.
By faith is how I know them,
Much the same as you,
And sharing our lives brings them close –
From that our friendship grew.
Please take an extra minute
From your duties up above
To bless this little hunk of steel
That’s filled with so much love.
