God Grant Me
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.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace.
God, grant me the Strength to know that
The difficulties in my life will only
Serve to make me stronger.
God, grant me Courage to know that
Fear and danger will allow me to
Learn to overcome obstacles, whether
They be real or perceived.
God, grant me Love to know that
Rejection from others will only
Serve to make me understand how
To love them without condition.
God, grant me the Special Favor to know
That I am not any more special or
Different than any other person, which
Serves to remind me that we get as
Much as we give.
God, grant me Forgiveness to know that
If I choose not to forgive others, they
Won’t lose near as much sleep over
It as I will.
God, grant me Prosperity to know that
If I work toward my goals with a more
Cheerfully creative attitude, and with
More enthusiasm for the process
Instead of the outcome, success
Will be sweeter.
And God, grant me Wisdom to realize
That even though I only think I
Received nothing that I wanted….
I always received everything that I
Ever needed in order to grow at
The pace perfectly suited to my
Soul’s real needs.
