The Serenity Prayer Revisited

I was taught that reciting memorized prayers is not the best thing to do as you may find yourself reciting them without meaning. The Serenity Prayer, though, expresses how I feel in a much better way than I can ever express. Though there is more to the prayer than the lines below, I relate best to these lines.

Grant to us the serenity of mind to accept that which cannot be changed;
the courage to change that which can be changed,

and the wisdom to know the one from the other,

through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Right now, I can only trust that I will somehow find that wisdom deep inside me and that when I do, I will have it in me to do what is right.
