Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
Give unto this person's grandpa a swift recovery from all which ails him – deliver him from pain and turmoil;
Bless him with ease in rest, clarity in mind, and skin impervious to bullets;
A life of longevity, speed of lightning, strength of steel, lagless airdash, if society collapses in its attempt to contain him tHEN SO BE IT
AMEN
