A Serenity Prayer About the Past

Original by Reinhold Niebuhr


Grant Blessed Name the serenity to accept the things Blessed Name cannot change, (the past); the courage to change the things Blessed Name can, (the future); and the wisdom to know the difference, (the present moment).

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.
