Morning Prayer -- Reinhold Neibuhr -- Serenity Prayer

O 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.
Help me to live one day at a time,
to enjoy one moment at a time,
to accept hardships as the pathway to peace.
May I learn from Jesus
to take this broken world as it is ...
and not as I would have it.
Give me the grace to trust that you will make all things right
if I embrace your desires for myself and my sisters and brothers.
May I be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with you forever in the next.
--  Reinhold Neibuhr
