Prayer for 2010

As we embark on a new year, the Lord impressed on me today the reality that He has already walked 2010.  He knows what the year holds in store for every single one of us.  And because of that, He wants to guide us through, moment by moment.  But it requires the submission of the will.  So here is my prayer for 2010.  I ask you to join me…

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.
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 in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
Amen.
(The Serenity Prayer by William Spence, 1953)
