Serenity Prayer

I inserted the serenity prayer into Shma Koleinu this morning and shuddered as I was struck by how profound a plea it presents:

G-d, 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.

Reinhold Niebuhr
