Have you ever read the entire Serenity Prayer? Of course we all know the beginning, but have you ever actually read (or heard) the whole thing?


The first part the "world" can agree with. The second part....not so much.

The Serenity Prayer
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.
