Bloom's leadership recognizes that this is a season of great stress for many if not most people. It is in times such as these where prayer can be helpful. "The Serenity Prayer" is an useful example a prayer when you are feeling overwhelmed by events.
"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. "
