THE SERENITY PRAYER 1

 

 

 

GOD, grant me the SERENITY

 

to accept the things

 

I cannot change,

 

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 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.

 

 

Amen

 

 

By Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
