My talisman

My talisman has always been the Lord's Prayer. During times of stress and grief, I instinctively say the words over and over. In fact, I often have to slow myself down to concentrate on the words and their full meaning. It's my spiritual comfort blanket.

Amanda recommends Psalm 23. I'm also partial to the prayer of St. Francis which I have on a placard on my bathroom wall - one of those odd mementos I have from my great grandmother. The Serenity prayer is also a good standby.

Do you have a spiritual talisman?
