Serenity prayer


God grant me the serenity 


To accept the things I cannot change; 



Courage to change the things I can; 



And 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; 



So that I may be reasonably happy in this life 



And supremely happy with Him 



Forever and ever in the next. 


Amen.
