Original Serenity Prayer

God, give us grace to accept with serenity

things that cannot be changed,

Courage to change the things

which should be changed,.

and the Wisdom to distinguish.

the one from the other..

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..
