Irreverant or Serious?

Hey, God! I hope you're there. 
I want you to hear my prayer. 
That graven image on my shelf:
Is it really You or just myself?
Well, anyway here it goes:
Please keep me on my toes.
Help me past my worst mistakes, 
Doing it for both our sakes, 
For an example of perfection
To the Proctors in my section;
Or merely for the Heaven of it,
Like bread, for the leaven of it. 
For whatever reason may incline, 
Please act for Yours and mine. 

      — Chapterhouse: Dune, Frank Herbert
