One of our greatest longings today is for peace—in our own hearts and in the world around us. We have the desire to be at peace with ourselves, with others and with God. In response to this search for peace, Trevor Hudson expounds on a simple prayer that most of us are familiar with:
God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Trevor carefully explains the meaning of each part of the prayer and its application to our lives. Chapters include: Learning to live one day at a time; Surrendering to God’s will; Accepting hardships; and Changing the things we can.
A Prayer for Serenity will help you develop those attitudes that will enable you to find peace even in difficult circumstances.
