The Serenity Prayer

    God, grant me the Serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change,
    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 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 life,
    and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.

    Amen

    ~ Reinhold Niebuhr ~
    (1892-1971)
