Prayer for Serenity

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 hardships as the 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.
