The Serenity Prayer

By Nate LaClaire

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. —Reinhold Niebuhr

What an awesome prayer… I saw this on a “thinking of you” card several months ago and it has stuck with me. I finally looked it up and discovered that it can most likely be attributed to the theologian above, although it was popularized by Alcoholics Anonymous. I’m not one for memorizing prayers, but this is one that I have and God has brought it back to me time and time again.
