The original Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971) was a very infuential American theologian. He wrote what came to be known as the Serenity Prayer for a sermon, and used it in a variety of forms, including a longer-form poem. Below is the best-known version of it.
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.
-- Reinhold Niebuhr
