Prayer for Serenity | By Reinhold Niebuhr

By Reinhold Niebuhr 

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 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 Himforever in the next.
