Serenity Chaplet

I came up with an idea for a "Serenity Chaplet", prayed on a regular 5 decade rosary. It was partly inspired by my sponsor. Only the beads are used, not the chain.

"Serenity Chaplet"

Cross self: "In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit"

Our Father (1x)
Jesus Prayer (3x)
Serenity Prayer (1x)

[Repeat for 5 Decades]
Jesus Prayer (10x)
Serenity Prayer (1x)


The Serenity Prayer is: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

In the Jesus Prayer, an addiction can be substituted for "sinner", such as "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, an [alcoholic/addict]."

I've been doing this for a while now and it is one of my favorite spiritual exercises. The discipline is doing me a lot of good.
