The Chess Players Prayer

Our Father

Who art in heaven

Hallowed be thy name

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be on this chessboard

As it is in heaven

Give us this day

Our peace of mind

To find the best moves

Forgive us for flouting the chess rules

Lead us not into blunders

And deliver us from zugzwangs

For yours is the kingdom

Tactical and Strategic

Forever and forever

A pawn.
