The Serenity Prayer

God, grant us the... Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can,
and the Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways,
the Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and
the Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

{The serenity prayer is a universal proclamation to God and a prayer for all those who find life a difficult path to trod. This prayer is a part of the 12 step programme adopted for AA and several self help groups. I have always liked it and it has a practical approach that appeals to almost everybody. So go on and say it and let it make sense to you when it has to :)}
