THE SERENITY PRAYERS

common

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

 

The courage to change the things I can, and

 

The wisdom to know the difference

 

original

God, give me grace to accept with serenity the 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.

 

Amen.

 

American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971)

modified

God, grant me the serenity

to grieve and accept the things I cannot change,

 

The courage found in learning, training, and practicing to change the things I can,

which

will usually  provide me with most of

 

The wisdom I need to know the difference.

Amen
