There are certain things I can't undo ; I can't turn back the clock.

I first came to know this prayer from a bookmark I bought from the bookstore when I was in Sec 4. It has helped me a few times when I encountered certain events in my life . I am sure some of you reading this know this prayer as well. It has two versions, the abbreviated ( first 4 lines ) and the longer one.

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.
