Serenity Prayer, 

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.

What were your thoughts, experience of the Serenity Prayer? 

Was it off putting, or was it comforting? 

Did the word God bother you?

Early days, What did it mean to you ( and hosts), in the early days.

How did you begin to apply it to your sobriety/ recovery.

Did it help?

What the Prayer did for me in the early days ( and can still do today), is remind me of the 

importance of acceptance, can bring comfort to me and it also began to develop a Faith in a power greater than myself, the idea that something outside of myself ( or within myself), could help me....restore me to Sanity.

When I pray, I consider the idea that I am not alone, and sometimes this is a very new concept for the new person. 

It can also begin to grow an inner humility, an understanding that I am not and can not control everything or everyone in my life.....something that we all tried to do in our addiction!!!

God grant me the Serenity....What does this mean to you?

To accept the things I can not change, how do we do this, why do we need to do this?

Courage to change the things I can.. where can you put the action in ?

Wisdom to know the difference....How does the Program help you to do this? 

When I pray, I feel that I am not alone, is this important?, Why is it important for the new guy, or the long timer.

Just think the next time you're in a meeting and you're all saying the Serenity Prayer, just take a moment to consider how many of us all over the world are doing the same thing!! Isn't that wild? Something that brings me such joy and a sense of togetherness and Peace🌟
