The Serenity Prayer

O 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 hardships as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as he did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it.

Trusting that he will make all things right if I surrender to his will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this world
and supremely happy with him forever.  Amen.

 Attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
