In an interview at the Actor's Studio in Manhattan, Anthony Hopkins was asked which swear word was his favorite. He answered in part by saying that he once asked a Jesuit priest what was the shortest prayer. The priest replied, "fuck it."
That is, the shortest prayer is more or less giving up and letting God, whatever God is, step in and take over.
I think "fuck it" is a great prayer.
The Swedish word for the day is hjälplös. It means helpless.
