Is has words like help me changes things I can and accept things I can't change and know the difference.

  • Its the Serenity Prayer

    Here is the long version

    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
