Oh Lord give me strength…

An Internet Forum poster’s prayer:

“Oh Lord give me strength as I watch
Tonight’s McCann documentary.
May I not give myself over to anger,
Nor throw heavy objects at the TV set.
Neither may I scream in outrage
So as to annoy the neighbours.
In all manner of things may you give me peace,
That I may better analyse the deceptions
And the obfuscations and the downright lies.
Lord preserve me from the pink-shirted one
That I may never use the word ludicrous
Nor unhelpful, nor hurtful.
So Lord, give your blessing on all our endeavours
That we may see justice prevail
And Fiona Phillips blush bright red
When she reads the words:
“Today Gerry and Kate McCann begin
Serving their sentences in a Portugese prison
Following yesterday’s damning verdict.”
Amen.”
