Hello Mamas, hope all is well! I just want to share with you the other serenity prayer that I discovered as I was researching for the long and short versions of the serenity prayer that I shared with you earlier.
I like that the prayer is short and very meaningful (just like the original version), so, thinking of sharing it with you here.
The Other Serenity Prayer
Here’s the complete prayer:
God, grant me the serenity to stop beating myself up for not doing things perfectly,
the courage to forgive myself because I’m working on doing better,
and the wisdom to know You already love me just the way I am.
Who Wrote The Other Serenity Prayer?
According to the readings I’ve done, the other serenity prayer was written by Eleanor Brownn, a personal growth consultant and educator.
As the name of the prayer suggests, it’s coined from the original short version of the serenity prayer.
I love the 3rd line that says ” and the wisdom to know You already love me just the way I am.” because it feels like the continuation of God’s message for me from the first line of the Litany of Trust that I shared previously.
It’s another reminder for all of us not to be hard on ourselves and to give ourselves grace, just like what God is constantly doing to us.
