Maia's SERENITY Prayer

SERENITY -- a disposition free from stress or emotion; the absence of mental stress or anxiety.

i have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. (Philippians 4:12)

For i can do everything with the help of CHRIST who gives me the strength i need. (Philippians 4:13)

And let the peace that comes from CHRIST rule in your hearts. (Colossians 3:15)

SERENITY Prayer, back.

GOD, grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change,
The 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 a pathway to peace;
Taking, as JESUS did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as i would have it;
Trusting that You will make all things right
if i surrender to Your will;
So that i may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.

(Reinhold Niebuhr)
