We all want peace. We all crave peace in our lives and this is something that can be achieved by creating a serenity prayer journal. It is no news that like its name states, a serenity prayer journal allows you to be at peace with yourself.
For Christians, the serenity prayer is very powerful and common. When you want to have God’s serenity, you use this prayer. If you are in a Twelve Steps recovery program, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), there is a great chance that you must have heard it, because it is one of the AA prayers. This prayer helps an alcoholic to recover and see that alcoholism is something that should be avoided.
In your serenity prayer journal, it won’t be a bad idea to write out your variation of the serenity prayer and even consider discussing with others to pray with you.
In this life, we have to believe in God and trust that His ways are perfect for us. This can’t be done easily. This is the basic truth. This prayer asks God to give you the grace to have intense understanding, faith, and happiness in what you do daily.
The serenity prayer is as follows.
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.
How to Use Your Serenity Prayer Journal
You can decide to alter it too to meet your prayer request. If you are an alcoholic or a Christian that wants to be at peace, this prayer is great for you. You can add your extra needs and thoughts to it. Pray it and you will be surprised with the peace that you will feel in your heart to face whatever may besiege you.
Below are some tips that you should consider the following when making this prayer journal.
You should consider memorizing the words that are in this prayer. Write it out and read it daily. In no time, you will be able to say it out from memory.
You should consider talking to God directly. It is important that you don’t merely repeat the words without giving it much thought. This is a meaningful conversation with God, you should be interested in what you are saying. It will go a long way to help you and feel at peace.
Once you are some praying, write down your reflections in your serenity prayer journal. This allows you to write out your progress and monitor it when happiness and serenity are concerned.
