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.






By Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
