More Serenity Today

Saturday, January 19, 2013

The Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr
(Born Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr on June 21, 1892, an American theologian)

God, give us 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.

I commit myself to this prayer daily as God works in my life, each moment, without exception.
