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.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time,
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
taking, as Jesus did,
the 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.
