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,
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.

-Reinhold Niebuhr
