Prayer for a Sense of Humor

Lord Jesus Christ,

for some reason some Christians seem to lack a sense of humor.

They become so bogged down in the gravity of things that they are perpetually tense and serious-minded. 

I ask today that I may cultivate a sense of humor and use it to help others, as well as myself.

Let me realize that humor is also a creation of Yours and that a smile is one the greatest blessings of life. 

Teach me to stress the positive side of life and develop a great sense of humor.
