This is the only prayer that needs to be prayed. Possibly, the only spell worth casting..if you swing in a more unique direction.
It’s a request for self awareness as we struggle in a land where people brutalize each other for telling truths.
It is a silent tribute to self reliance-asking to be made smart enough to figure things out for oneself, not to be given answers by someone else.
It’s a collection of words that can work magic if
it’s first believed to be worth considering and then with requests finally granted.
Its an invitation for us to consider becoming more humble. At least enough to realize we’re not as wise as we think we are. Though the type of fools we’ve allowed to control our lives should have made that fact crystal clear a long time ago.
Either way, here it is, worthwhile as ever…
The Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr
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.
