A prayer for hard times.
A prayer for all times.
A gift from the Sky.
Shining down as heavenly grace …
God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
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
Trust in GOD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to Him,
and he will direct your paths.
— Proverbs 3, 5-6
