God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the 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.   Amen. 8 January - God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. (Unfortunately there was an issue with the audio - so please see the link below for better audio)  There was a problem with the audio on this one - download a better version of the audio here. 15 January - the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.   22 January - Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, 29 January - accepting hardships as the pathway to peace,
