God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things 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.
This prayer is said to be authored by American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr. It is commonly used by Celebrate Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous and other twelve-step programs.
This prayer was on the Christian faith-based Movie, Home Run.
