A Prayer for all seasons

God grant us the serenity to accept the things we
cannot change, Courage to change the things we can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
Twelve steps and twelve traditions pg 125

The power of this prayer is overwhelming in that its
Simple beauty parallels the AA Fellowship. There
Are times when I get stuck while reciting it, but if I
Examine the section which is troubling me, I find
The answer to my problem. The first time this hap-
pened I was scared, but now I use it as a valuable
tool. By accepting life as it is, I gain serenity. By
taking action, I gain courage and I thank God for
the ability to distinguish between those situations I
can work on, and those I must turn over. All that I
have now is a gift from God: my life, my usefulness,
my contentment, and this program. The serenity
enables me to continue walking forward.
Alcoholics Anonymous is the easier, softer way.
