The Serenity Prayer
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 day at a time.. Accepting hardship as the path to peace.. Taking as He did, the 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 in the next.. Thy will, not mine, be done.
~ Reinhold Neibuhr ~
(I was wrong in my last post, this wasn't accredited to St. Francis of Assisi, though there is a beautiful prayer "Lord, let me be an instrument of peace..." that would also be appropriate.)
