S e r e n i t y   P r a y e r

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 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
