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.
I have tried to control the uncontrollable for far too long.
I ask that you take this burden from me.
I acknowledge that my life is unmanageable.
I ask for your care and guidance.
Grant me honesty, courage, humility, and serenity, to face that which keeps me from you and others.
I give this life to you to do with as you will.
From Life with Hope pg. 13
I put my hand in yours and together we can do what we could never do alone.
No longer is there a sense of hopelessness.
No longer must we each depend upon our own unsteady will power.
We are all together now reaching out our hands for a power and strength, greater than ours.
And, as we join hands we find love and understanding beyond our wildest dreams.
