There are many things in life where we would be able to solve by rational and analytical analysis. However, how those situations have come to our life does not necessarily depends on us.
I pray to God to give the courage to change the things I can; the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; and wisdom to know the difference. (From Serenity Prayer).
I pray for understanding people and situations, and for giving the best out me everyday.
My praying time is also a self-reflecting process to ask forgiveness for actions or non-actions where I feel I offended God, offended life, offended others, or offended myself.
One cannot seek for own benefit, but rather seek on how to become each time better to be active and useful for others.
In a challenging world, I daily find my strength through, where I am also pushed outside of any comfort zone.
