It's That Last Bit That's The Kicker

A while back SueBob did a post about the Serenity Prayer over at her regular gig on Flawed But Authentic. I've always thought that it's one of the few prayers that makes complete sense to me. I like to change that first God to a Please ("Please grant me the serenity...") but I think that's allowed. A little polite language never hurt anything. It's a prayer about doing your best and helping yourself and...oh Sue said it better, go see what she thinks. Meanwhile I'm going to be working on following the wisdom of that little gem of a prayer.

  1. Since I don't believe in God, I guess I'd have to admit I don't believe in prayer. If you want to give yourself a good talking-to regarding your own behaviour, well, the Serenity "Prayer" is as good a way as any, I suppose. On the other had, some folks might think it is a request for "divine intervention" and stop working on their self-perceived flaws.
