SERENITY PRAYER – FULL VERSION, 7 BENEFITS AND ITS HISTORY
POSTED BY PADRE ON AUGUST 18, 2017 serenity-prayer
The Serenity Prayer is perhaps the most popular prayer today. Serenity. What a beautiful word. How peaceful and divine this word sounds. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and think of what it would look like. I took a deep breath, I closed my eyes and I saw a quiet garden full of beautiful flowers: orchids, lilies, edelweiss, and a big oak in the middle of the garden. The birds sing songs of happiness. The sun covers my face with its warmth and the soft air weaves comfortably through my hair. It looks and sounds like Heaven.
Or maybe this is Heaven. God grant me serenity! Please, hear my serenity prayer and give me peace, courage, and wisdom.
What Does Serenity Mean?
Serenity means peace of mind, quietness, and calmness. When your mind is clear, your heart is full of love, and you are able to spread love all around you; it’s that moment when you know that you have touched the serenity state of being.
What is The Serenity Prayer?
I’m sure you have heard about the prayer for serenity many times. But do you really know what the prayer for serenity can do for you? Take a look at what serenity means and then look inside your soul and mind.
Do you feel serenity? If not, let me help you because having peace in your life means more than a quiet, organized life and love. Serenity is the proof that you have a strong connection with God and you need courage and wisdom to touch this level of divine connection.
It’s obvious that for a strong connection with God you need to call on Him through a prayer. Therefore, I will teach you the serenity prayer, and I will show you the benefits of asking God: “Lord grant me the serenity prayer!”. You need to know that there are two versions of the original serenity prayer: the serenity prayer short version and the serenity prayer long version.
The Serenity Prayer
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.
