If you do not believe in God stop here, and please do not take offense.
I am in a very bad space right now and this prayer is helping me get through. If it helps just one person, I feel it is worth it.
God grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change,
Courage to change the things
I can, and the wisdom
to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship 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.

" Hope no one minds a different version I found once-

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
the courage to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know it is me.

I thought this was an interesting take on the original. Love the prayer- "
