One Day at a Time:

The Serenity Prayer


Here's a classic prayer, famous for its connection to Alcoholics Anonymous, that would be worthwhile to print out and paste inside your closet, on your bathroom mirror, or anywhere you'll see it every day. A student could tape it to the inside of his or her assignment notebook, and look at it every time the pressures of this world seem to be mounting up and overwhelming:


O God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things that I can, and 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 Christ did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that Christ 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.
