Improvements on the Serenity Prayer

November 27, 2014

I recently wrote a paper on the theology of marriage and concluded with my own variation on the Serenity Prayer. Somewhere in the back of my mind I recall reading such things but don’t know where, so it may be that this is not original and I am channeling a distant memory. But I reckon this is a definite improvement.


God, grant us the serenity

To accept the things we cannot change

The courage to change the things we can

and the wisdom to know that we probably don’t know the difference

And that you are, nevertheless, not limited by our incapacity.
