SERENITY PRAYER

Grant me serenity Lord, I pray,
During times of stress and strife,
To accept the things I cannot change
And get on with my daily life.

Grant me courage Lord, I pray,
To change the things I can,
That there be no needless suffering
For myself or fellow man.

Grant me wisdom Lord, I pray,
That I may clearly see,
Things to accept or things to change,
Lord, my guide and mentor be.

Serenity, courage, wisdom,
I daily seek f rom Thee,
That I may live a life that's free
From fear and anxiety.
