ACA Serenity Prayer
God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
the courage to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know that one is me.

A long version of an ACA Serenity Prayer
Loving parent, grant me the serenity,
to accept the people I cannot change,
Courage to change the one I can
And wisdom to know that one is me.
Grant me patience for the changes that take time,
An appreciation for all that I have,
A tolerance for those with difference struggles
And the strength to get up and try again
One day at a time.
