Daily surrender of ego and trust in a loving God brings a gentle transformation within the core of ourselves and removes us from our addictions and attachments.
Today it’s as simple as saying the Serenity Prayer written by American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr. This prayer is used in church basements and halls across the globe, uniting members of Alcoholics Anonymous and beyond. It is a prayer that, at times, has been the saving grace for many, and the few words that have helped many of us cling to the hope given to us by God.
May this be our prayer today.
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.
