I Need Some Laughter

I need some laughter, Lord.

I have had enough
of sad saints
and sour religion.

I have had enough
of sin spotting
and grace doubting.
I need some laughter, Lord,
the kind you planted in Sarah.

But, please may I not have to wait
until I am ninety
and pregnant.

(Church of Scotland Prayer, as found in Celtic Daily Prayer: Book Two; HT Leonard Sweet)
