The Programmer's Prayer

Our program, which art in memory
Hello be thy name
Thy operating system come
Thy commands be done
At the Printer
As it is on the screen.
Give us this day our daily data
And forgive us our input/output errors
As we forgive those whose circuits are faulty.
Lead us not into frustration
And deliver us from power surges.
For this is the algorithm
Application and solution
Looping forever and ever.
