This is one of those "author unknown" prayers that's all over the Internet. Many label it as a Franciscan blessing:

"May God bless you with discomfort--at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart.

"May God bless you with anger--at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people and the earth, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.

"May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

"May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done"
