Prayer for Serenity in 2009

Probably everyone has heard or read this prayer. The prayer is one I often use as a mantra when life seems to whirl out of control for me. It helps me realize, truly, I can't control most things but I can choose how to deal with them.


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.

Linda, I find that if I say those few words to myself, whatever trial is in front of me seems to be be easier to handle.
