Pray for peace and grace and spiritual food; for wisdom and guidance, for all these are good; but don’t forget the potatoes. (J. T. Pettee)

A prayer from “Common Worship”

Almighty God, you see that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves. Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Post Communion Prayer, Lent 2)
