The Chief Petty Officer's Prayer
So far today, I have lived my
life as you would intend.
I have not lost my temper,
So far I have not even grabbed the Chief's Mess Cook by the throat, like yesterday.
I have said nothing insulting or humiliating to the Junior Officers.
I have not complained about the
coffee, the ship's schedule, the watch bill
I have told no lies...
I have not cheated at poker.
Ihve put no ship's tools in my personal toolbox.
My point is, God, I believe that so far today I have committed no grievous sins.
Thank you, God for helping me to stay righteous so far,
But Lord, it is almost 0600 (6:00 AM) and in a little while, I am going to roll out of my bunk, and after that...
I think I may need a lot more Help!
