David Ker has composed this lovely prayer of repentance to be said after succumbing to the urge to forward a goofy email:
God, I hang my head in shame.
My idiotic emails have tarnished your name.
Instead of spreading lucidity.
I have been a proclaimer of stupidity.
Words of praise to you should be my song.
Not forwarded emails that are always wrong.
Help me not to waste others’ time,
But instead reflect on the divine.
Make me a fool for Christ. I am a fool.
But let me not be the enemy’s tool.
