Anne Lamott on Prayer

Actually, Anne is wrong. Thank you, thank you, thank you is a valid and valuable prayer. But help me, help me, help me is the wrong spirit for a prayer.

A better prayer? Bless me, bless me, bless me. Help me suggests that you are weak and incapable. Bless me simply asks for a blessing. No denigration of yourself.
