A Serenity Prayer About Self-forgiveness

original by Reinhold Niebuhr

God,

Grant Blessed Name the serenity to stop beating Blessed Name up for not doing things perfectly; the courage for Blessed Name to forgive Blessed Name because Blessed Name is working on doing better; and the wisdom Blessed Name to know that You already love Blessed Name just the way Blessed Name is.

Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as the pathway to Blessed Name‘s inner peace.

Taking, as You did, this sinful world as it is, not as Blessed Name believes it should be.

Trusting that You will make all things right if Blessed Name surrenders to Your will;

That Blessed Name may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with You forever in the next.

Amen.
