I have the first part of the Serenity Prayer posted in my home. I heard the second part for the first time a few years ago, and really find it helpful to "take things as they are" and remember where my true happiness is. Thanks so much for sharing it.
I never heard the second verse, very beautiful. Thank you

Thanks for posting! I have a copy of this at work and a copy readily available on my iPhone
If you google serenity prayer, a bunch of neat things come up, including the origins of the prayer. The original was worded a little different, and it is the official prayer of Alcoholics Anonomyous. I love the part about accepting hardship as a way to peace. We cannot run from our problems with food, drink or drugs and grow spiritually. We have to hang in there and bear our crosses and then we grow spiritually.
Amen...thanks you always post great prayers

You will see it when you believe it. ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
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.
