Holy Humor Sunday Prayer

Here’s a prayer for Holy Humor Sunday (the Sunday after Easter). It was written by Thom Shuman.

Holy Humor Sunday Prayer

in the presence
of stunning sunsets;

stricken with chronic severity
while surrounded
by gurgling babies;

frozen-souled when touched
by the warmth of

if we are made in your image,
it's no wonder people think of you
as a grouchy old geezer,
God of Joy.

so, breathe on us . . .

fill our souls with:
laughter which chases away
the long faces;
chuckles which wipe frowns
off our brows;
great guffaws
which shatter hardened hearts;

fill us,
Breath of sidesplitting shrieks,

so we can celebrate
the last laugh on
