God, grant me the serenity…
So I rewrote it and out came the “Leader’s Prayer for Serenity.”
As leaders, we often worry about the things we cannot change, like the economy, our team members’ personal lives, or what the competition is doing. This worry is crippling. So much so that we cannot focus on the things we can change (ourselves, our company culture, our modeling to others).
This prayer is all about asking God to allow us to focus only on what we can change, even while the world around us may spin out of control.
If you are a leader, you would do well to prayer this daily.
