I read this prayer for a clergy meeting yesterday. Wanted to share. Pray with me: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting, O God, that you will make all things right if I surrender to your will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with you forever in the next. Amen.
- the words "wisdom to know the difference". this speaks to me especially at this time as I consider a significant decision. Wisdom - what I pray for each day. Thanks for sharing Mark.
- Great wisdom. I find myself repeating these thoughts to ground my in these chaotic times. Thank you Mark
- Thank you all. This is the way we can use Faithlife to have conversations and share prayers etc. that touch us.
