Although the Serenity Prayer, by Dr Reinhold Niebuhr, is used as part of the 12-step programs used by recovering alcaholics and other addicts it is also useful for people recovering from emotional abuse in all it's forms.

The Serenity Prayer

Short version of the Serenity Prayer

God grant me the Serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to
change the things I can;
and the Wisdom to
know the difference.

Long version of the Serenity Prayer

God grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things 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 he did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would like it.

Trusting that he will make all things right,
If I surrender to his will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this world
And supremely happy in the next.

Reinhold Niebuhr, Noted German Theologian



This prayer has been credited to almost every theologian, philosopher and saint known to man. It was actually written around 1932 by Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr of the Union Theological Seminary in New York City, as the ending to a longer prayer.
