Chaplain's Corner - July 2014

The following is the well-known Serenity Prayer that is used by organizations that help people overcome their life-destroying problems. I thought it would be helpful to you to know this Christian way to confront and resolve problems that may be destroying your life.

This is the full original copy of the Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971).

“God, give us 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. Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a pathway to peace, taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it, trusting that You will make all things right, if I surrender to Your will, so that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.“

This is my prayer for you:

"Almighty and Awesome God, whom we love, fear, and respect, we approach You in the confidence of our faith that You hear our prayers and answer them according to Your divine will, plan, and purpose for our lives. We pray you will bless us with the strength, courage, and wisdom of your Holy Spirit to help us to overcome the evil problems that are threatening to take control our lives We pray that you would forgive us our sins and restore our broken relationship with you, and guide us to our eternal home with you in heaven…..we ask this in the name of Jesus."
