12-Step fellowship members in recovery will recognise the principles in Mychal’s prayer as similar to the Serenity prayer.
Lord, take me where You want me to go;
Let me meet who You want me to meet;
Tell me what You want me to say, and
Keep me out of Your way.
Written by Franciscan Friar, Mychal F. Judge, killed by debris at age 68, World Trade Center, 11th September 2001.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.
An enduring prayer / spiritual meditation used by recovering people all around the world.
