The Serentiy Prayer

If you don’t believe in god it doesn’t matter. This prayer is actually a poem.

It’s a reminder of how to be strong and live with dignity and discipline.

It’s  a reminder that it’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do about it that counts.

God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a 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.
