The Serenity Prayer

Knowing what is causing your stress and whether you have the ability to make a change is very important. The “Serenity Prayer” outlines this challenge. You may find that recalling this prayer in stressful situations helps you keep perspective.

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.
