Prayer For the Coming Year 

Originally written for the start of the new century, January 1, 2000.

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, 
your cardiologist,your gastro-enterologist, 
your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your 
psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.  May your hair, 
your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and 
your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, 
your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.
May you find a way to travel from anywhere to anywhere in the rush hour in less than an hour, 
and when you get there may you find a parking space.
May Friday evening, December 31, find you together 
with your beloved family and cherished friends, 
ushering in the New Year.  You will find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.
May you wake up on January 1st, finding that the world 
has not come to an end, the lights work, 
the water faucets flow, and the sky has not fallen.
May you go to the bank on Monday morning, January 3rd, and find your account is in order, your money is still there and any mistakes are in your favor.
May you ponder on January 4th; 
How did this ultramodern civilization of ours 
manage to get itself traumatized by 
a possible slip of a blip on a chip made 
out of sand.  May we relax about the Third Millennium 
of the Common Era, and realize that we still have 240 years until the dawn of the Sixth Millennium of 
the Jewish Calendar by which time the computer 
will be long since obsolete and so will we.

May God give you the strength to go through 
a year of presidential campaigning, 
and may some of the promises made be kept.  
May you believe  at least half of what the candidates propose, and may those elected fulfill at least half of 
what they promise, and the miracle of reducing taxes 
and balancing budgets happen.
May you be awe struck by God's sense of humor 
as you wrestle with the possibility that a professional wrestler could become president of the United States.
May what you see in the mirror delight you, 
and what others see in you delight them.
May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, 
be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.
May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls 
until you finish dinner, and may your check book 
and your budget balance, and may they include 
generous amounts for charity.
May you remember to say "I Love You" at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.
And may we live in a world at peace with the 
awareness of God's love in every sunset, 
every flower's unfolding petals, 
every baby's smile, 
every lover's kiss, 
and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.
