Serenity Prayer


The Serenity Prayer is often attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr, a 20th-century American theologian. This prayer is frequently used in 12-step programs and other recovery groups to help individuals find peace, courage, and wisdom in their lives. The prayer goes as follows:

 

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.
