Prayer by Michael Williams ’18
Change. Change is something that we all go through in our lives whether it’s a small change or something that changes your whole life. When change comes, we often worry that things won’t be as good. We have to see change as the same or better than the situation we are already in. Many people do not see change as positive, primarily because it is unfair. But the truth about change is this- life moves on whether you like it or not. Paul wrote, “Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace shall be yours.” (Phil. 4:6,7).
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
Let us Pray:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and 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;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
Mary, Seat of Wisdom, Pray for Us.
