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 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.
