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.
AMEN

–Reinhold Niebuhr
