Serenity Prayer

Jan 03, 2011 - 5 comments

Serenity Prayer


God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
  
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
...Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.




--Reinhold Niebuhr

This is the full version of the prayer. The first part is what everyone knows, but the full prayer is extremely powerful as well. This is my prayer for 2011.

Me too, April.  Thanks for this.  I'm going to copy and tape it to my vanity and monitor.  Hope today has been a good and positive one for you so far.

Two years have passed since I posted this. Just seems like a good one to bring up again. It brings me peace.
