Modern Day Serenity Prayer

Dear higher self
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Other ways of creating peace & tranquility
  • Doing the things we know bring us serenity as often as possible.
  • Daily spiritual practices.
  • Getting out of fear and staying out of fear.
  • Living in the now.

So serenity is not about living without, or in emptiness, but it is about living fully within all that life brings you, fully embracing all of your emotions and each situation as it appears, so that at the end of the day, you can joyfully accept that you are just are as you are, living in each moment.


Original Serenity Prayer
The Serenity Prayer
Path

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.
Amen.

--Reinhold Niebuhr
