There are now two prayers that I actually like (well, maybe three if you count the snarky drivel I wrote yesterday). The first is Lord Nelson's Prayer, penned by the Viscount himself before Trafalgar, where he met his fate. I like it purely for its historic value, rather than the glaring example of someone justifying his desire for victory in something as amoral as battle with an appeal to a higher moral authority. A couple of years back I visited HMS VICTORY and got to see the paper on which it was written. It was rather moving.
This morning, my cousin posted a prayer on his blog. This one I also like, a great deal. And I'll leave it at that.
