Tea and a Thought: Pray For Good Sex!

I was reading The Irish Independent this morning and saw that a new book, The Prayer Book for Spouses, published by a prominent church group, encourages couples to pray together before sex.
The "Prayer Before Making Love" is intended to help couples purify their intentions and implores God to "place within us love that truly gives, tenderness that truly unites, self-offering that tells the truth and does not deceive, forgiveness that truly receives, loving physical union that welcomes".
I've got my own rota of prayers before a quick roll in the hay; I pray for energy, I pray for flattering light and the appearance of skinnier thighs, pray that I won't get pregnant, pray that I won't get beard rash on my neck, and, if all of my aforementioned prayers have been answered, I pray for a not-so-quick roll in the hay. I guess I could also rattle off a quick prayer for some holy tenderness...
