Thanks For Bodily Functions
“A healthy soul in a healthy body,” goes the saying. And we have no one to thank for our physical health but the Chief Human Engineer Who created us all in His infinite wisdom.
This prayer is traditionally recited after leaving the restroom:
You are the Source of Blessing, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who fashioned man with wisdom, and created within him many openings and many cavities.
It is clearly known before Your Throne of Glory that if one of the organs which is closed should open, or if one of the open ones should close, it would be impossible to exist and stand before you, even for a moment.
You are the Source of Blessing, God, who heals all flesh and performs wonders.
