Every single evening as I'm lying here in bed,

This tiny little prayer keeps running through my head.

God bless all my family, wherever they may be

Keep them warm and safe from harm, for they're so close to me.

And God, there is one more thing I wish that you could do

Hope You don't mind me asking, please bless my computer too.

I know that it's unusual to bless a motherboard

But listen just a second while I explain it to you Lord.

You see, that little metal box holds more than odds and ends;

Inside those small compartments, rest so many of my friends.

I know so much about them by the kindness that they give

And this little scrap of metal takes me in to where they live.

By faith is how I know them - much the same as You,

We share in what life brings us and from that our friendships grew.

Please take an extra minute from Your duties up above

To bless those in my address book that's filled with so much love.

Wherever else this prayer may reach, to each and every friend,

Bless each email in-box, and each person who hits 'send'.

When You update Your heavenly list, on Your own great CD-Rom,

Bless everyone who says this prayer, sent up to
