Monday Meditation – Serenity Prayer

I’ve decided to make Monday’s a day for thoughtful insight and and reflection. Most people have partied the weekend away or just “hate Monday’s” in general. With that in mind, I figure a nice little pick me up is in order.

Today’s quote is from my Prayers & Blessings app. It’s a free app in the Google Play Store. It should also be in iTunes as well. I am not sure but you can look. Everyday it is a new prayer from the likes of Mother Theresa or bible verses. Today it was the Serenity Prayer thought to be by Reinhold Neibuhr (1892 – 1971) (They are not 100% sure but it is likely he prayed this particular prayer.)

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.

Living one day at a time;Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did this sinful world.

As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will;
So that I may be reasonably happy with Him forever and ever in the next.

Hope everyone will have a great week.

God Bless!
