Serenity Prayer

In all times of emotional disturbance or indecision,  
we can pause,   
ask for quiet,   
and in the stillness simply say:

“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.
Thy will, not mine be done.”
