Lord, deliver us from office hell
Those that suffer hell on earth trying to get to work - otherwise known as commuting - or a hellish workplace one you've arrived, praise be as help from above has arrived.
The Church of England has devised a prayer for stressed out workers in a bid to lure people back to God. The Church pinpointed this week as a good time to target commuters as they returned to work after the summer break or school holidays.
The prayer reads as follows:
You know me. Don't you?
I'm not just a person on a bus or a train. I'm not just another face on CCTV; or just another login name.
I'm me, and I have other stuff going on.
Love life issues; bills to pay. Egos at work to deal with; an overflowing inbox.
So please, give me strength.
Guide me to focus on what's really important.
And help me make the most of every moment of this new day in this new month.
Thank you. Amen
Wise words I think you will admit. Guru is always looking for divine inspiration when stuck on the Tube with his face in some bloke's sweaty armpit.
Guru can confirm he will not be going Back to Church on Sunday 28 September - the target day for the campaign. Guru will be spending it where he spends every Sunday morning, in bed recovering from the excesses of Saturday night.
