In 2011, I joined a wives care support group. Part of our meeting included reciting the Serenity Prayer.
It always caused distress for me, and sometimes it still does- because it’s all about giving God control, releasing our grip on everything we are grasping too tightly.
Accepting what we cannot change?
Courage to change the things I can?
That’s hard, too.
Wisdom to know the difference?
Yes, please, Lord.
God, grant me serenity.
With your help, I can do this. Amen.
