The Serenity Prayer

Posts of the last few days have covered children’s prayers, blessing, and songs.  Today’s covers a more adult prayer – though it would be good for children, too.

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.

These words are used by 12-step programs but their obvious wisdom applies to all of us.

Why are we aware of more wisdom than we practice?

Bible notes on this post.

The purpose of this blog is to proclaim Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church – or anything else – but Him.
