The Serenity Prayer

 

Back to Treasury

 

 

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

Reinhold Neibuhr-1926
