Anxiety

Serenity

Serenity Prayer

God, Grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change

The courage to change the things I can

And the wisdom to know the difference

Living one day at a time,

Enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;

Taking as Jesus did,

The sinful world as it is,

Not as I would have it;

Trusting you will make all things right

If I surrender to your will;

So that I may be reasonably happy in this life

And supremely happy in the next

Amen.
