I just finished reading a book called Death Be Not Proud by John Gunther. It is a father's story about his teenage son who has a brain tumor. The book ends with a prayer written by his son while he was so sick the tumor bulged out of his head . As an agnostic, I love this prayer:
forgive me for my agnosticism;
For I will try to keep it gentle, not cynical,
nor a bad influence.
if Thou art truly in the heavens,
accept my gratitude
for all Thy gifts
and I will try to fight the good fight. Amen.
--John Gunther Jr May 1946
