The Path to Peace

 O God, our Heavenly Father, 
Give me the grace to accept  the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things that I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
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…  Amen
