It’s Monday and another work week is underway. Perhaps, you’re under a lot of stress or maybe you’re grappling with a difficult situation. In light of that, for this week’s Monday Morning Cup I wanted to revisit the Serenity Prayer and share it with you once more.
God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
