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
