Prayer for those with a common cold
I’m suffering from a common cold – sore ears, sore throat, snuffles, blah. This prayer (hat tip Michelle Coram) is proving helpful.
God bless those who suffer from the common cold.
Nature has entered into them;
Has led them aside and gently lain them low
To contemplate life from the wayside;
To consider human frailty;
To receive the deep and dreamy messages of fever.
We give thanks for the insights of this humble perspective.
We give thanks for blessing in disguise.
Amen – Michael Leunig
