PRAYER OF THE MOMENT

Dear Lord,


Amen


The Serenity Prayer

The Serenity Prayer is a short inspirational prayer written by the theologian Reinhold Niebuhr in the 30's. Niebuhr wrote it with the intention to integrate it in one of his sermons and initially gave it no title. Later, it became known as The Serenity Prayer and it inspired lots of people with its power and wisdom. It is still one of the most popular and appreciated prayers of our time.

"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.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen."


Reinhold Niebuhr
