It was encouraging to me personally.  Recent world attacksPrayer of serenity have been relentless. I’ve been feeling defeated, depressed, frightened,  powerless, and exhausted by so many things coming at me from so many directions lately. This mini-course helped stand me back up.  I received Its message in my spirit. Its encouragement renewed my strength and reignited my fervor and determination.  It was refreshing and like good medicine. I will keep re-reading the slides and my notes,

I’ve learned that there are things that we cannot control, like changing people’s lifestyle, natural calamities, and poverty rising around the globe. So I’ve learned to accept the things that I cannot change, and I entrusted them to God’s will. I’ve learned as well that we need courage to change the things we can handle and wisdom to properly know the right kind of changes. Sometimes hardships will come along our way indeed, for we are living in this fallen world. But problems are a test of our faith, like refined gold passes through fire so does our faith.

M, Duhart, United States

As the Lord continues to lead me through life, I must continue to follow His leading. There will be times of acceptance and times when I must have the courage to accept His will for my life. Even if the situation is rough.

What did I like about The Prayer of Serenity? That it is not a prayer just for alcoholics to recite, but a prayer to use in our everyday life’s journey. I have never indulged in drinking or smoking but I do have struggles. This prayer has taught me to trust God one day and moment by moment at a time.
