Dear God,
I have many problems in my life
That I don’t know the answer to,
But I trust that you do.
Please guide me in the way
That is best and gives me wisdom and strength.
May your will be done! Amen.

The 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. 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. Amen.

Turning toward God Every Day

To surrender oneself is something more

than to devote oneself, more than to give oneself,
it is even more than to abandon oneself to God.
To surrender oneself is to die to everything and to self,
to keep it continually turned towards God.
Self-surrender is no longer to seek self-satisfaction in anything
but solely God’s good pleasure.
It should be added that self-surrender is to follow
that complete spirit of detachment
which holds to nothing;
neither to persons nor to things—
The whole thing consists in making a generous act
at the very beginning,
by saying with all the sincerity of your heart:
“My God, I wish to be entirely thine; deign to accept my offering”
—then all is said…

You must always remember that you have surrendered yourself.

—St. Thérèse Couderc
