The Serenity Prayer, in text and written on chalkboard, has helped millions to cope and find healthier ways to life their lives. I used to think that most people knew this rather famous prayer by heart, but I still meet a few folks now and then who have either forgotten it or never heard of it especially when they need it most.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
– Attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr and/or Bill W.
