The best known version:


The Serenity Prayer

God, grant me Serenity to
Accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and
Wisdom to know the difference.


The less known longer version:


The 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 day at a time..
Accepting hardship as the path to peace..
Taking as He did, the 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 in the next..
Thy will, not mine, be done.
