As Christians we yearn to trust in Gods ways, though it is not always easy. This is the ultimate prayer, asking God for a strong faith, understanding and happiness in daily life. Below is the complete, full text of this powerful prayer.

The Serenity Prayer

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;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

AA Prayer History

God grant me the serenity became the default prayer of Alcoholics Anonymous in the early 1940s when a member spotted the prayer in the obituaries section of the newspaper.

The prayers focus on acceptance resonated with the group. Acceptance is central to AAs philosophy. Only once you accept yourself as you are, can you begin to change the things in your life that are within your power to change. Though life can be difficult, it is possible to change ones life for the better, one step at a time.

The Serenity Prayer in Spanish

Dios, concedeme la serenidad para aceptar las cosas que no puedo combiar, el valor para cambiar las cosas que peudo cambiar y la sabiduria para conocer la diferencia;

Viviendo un dia a la vez, disfrutando un momento a la vez; aceptando las adversidades mundo pecador tal y como es, y no como me gustaria que fuera;

Creyendo qu Tu haras que todas las cosas esten bien si you me entrego a Tu voluntad; de modo qu peuda ser razonablemente feliz en esta vide e increiblemente felize Contigo en la siguiente. Amen.

Полный вариант (существует несколько русскоязычных репрезентаций с различным синтаксическим оформлением, но смысл один) : Молитва о душевном покое (Serenity Prayer) Боже, возьми и прими мою свободу,
Мою память, мое понимание и волю,
Все, что я есть и что есть у меня, дал мне Ты.

Господи, дай мне терпение принять то, что я не в силах изменить,
Дай мне силы изменить то, что возможно,
И дай мне мудрость научиться отличать первое от второго.

Жить каждым днем,
Наслаждаясь каждым мгновением,
Принимая трудности как путь к миру,
Принимать этот грешный мир таким, какой он есть,
А не таким, каким я хотел бы его видеть.

Доверять, что Ты все устроишь к лучшему,
Если я приму Твою волю,
Чтобы я мог быть достаточно счастлив в этой жизни
И невообразимо счастлив с Тобой в жизни грядущей.

Хотя автором молитвы считается богослов Рейнольд Нибур (Dr. Rheinhold Niebur), который утверждал, что написал ее как заключение к своей проповеди в 1930, существует множество предположений, что она была написана гораздо раньше.

Оригинал, но я смогла найти почему-то без первой фразы:

God, give me grace to accept with serenitythe things that cannot be changed,Courage to change the thingswhich should be changed,and the Wisdom to distinguishthe 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.
