Prayer of Serenity
God grant me 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 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 am reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen
