I Pray Like Frank Sinatra

I've been a fan of the Myers-Briggs Temperament Sorter  and its Keirsey  adaptations for a long time. For those familiar with the these temperament sorters, I fall on the NT spectrum; most tests show me to be an INTP.

A couple of days ago, Rod Dreher published a list of humorous one sentence prayers that illustrate how each type prays. The NTs pray the following prayers.
INTJ: Lord keep me open to others’ ideas, WRONG though they may be.
INTP: Lord help me be less independent, but let me do it my way.
ENTP: Lord help me follow established procedures today. On second thought, I’ll settle for a few minutes.
ENTJ: Lord, help me slow downandnotrushthroughwatIdo
The humor, of course, stems from the fact that my wife hears me  pray versions of these  prayers daily, often with a bit of profanity thrown in. Next time I'm tempted to swear, I'll just play a little Sinatra
