God, we admit we have not had the serenity to accept the things that cannot be changed, we have been afraid to change the things which should be changed, and we have not had the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other. We attempt to plan our entire lives before we’re eighteen, we do not live in the moment. We distrust that You will make all things right, because of this, we do not surrender to Your will. For this we ask your forgiveness and your mercy.
Our lives are in your hands, O God. Amen.
