The Lesser-Known Half of The Serenity Prayer

Most of us know The Serenity Prayer probably because of Acoholics Anonomys's adoption of this prayer in the 1940s. We don't hear the second half of the prayer very often though. I think it's just as beautiful and deserves inclusion always. Here's the prayer in its original entirety:

God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.

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.
