The Serenity Prayer

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.

Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;

Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is;

Not as I would have it;

Trusting that You will make all things right

if I surrender to Your will;

So that I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with You forever in the next.


--Reinhold Niebuhr
