Math Prayer

**Lord teach me to number my days**

And graph them according to your way

Trusting you to base me in my plan

To complement your perfect diagram

Subtract the points you do not want from me

But add the values you have set for me

Divide the dividends I possess accordingly

So I can multiply them systematically.

Draw the lines I have to follow

Guide me properly with your arrow

Because sometimes I tend to be irrational

Yet all the while you want me to be rational.

Well I learn that life is like a slope

With its ascends and descends that I must cope

Going through such a wonderful formula

Is just like solving problem in algebra

Life is indeed an infinite equation

Perfected by your eternal computation

And only a minuscule projection

Give thanks and praise your Almighty creation.
