God, grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things that 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,

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.
