The Serenity Prayer
Often attributed to theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, this prayer has been used by Alcoholics Anonymous and other recovery groups, distributed to soldiers and shared in many places. It is often only the first three lines you will see on plaques or bookmarks, but the whole prayer is worth praying often, especially in times of frustration. So, yes, recite it in traffic or when your flight is delayed, when your colleague or neighbor is driving you nuts or hot coffee just spilled all over you. Pray it when you need to have a tough conversation or move out of a relationship or job. But especially pray it when you are not sure what to do next!
Serenity PrayerGod 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 Him
forever in the next.
