Serenity Prayer Reinhold Niebuhr Recycled Vintage American License Plate Letter Art.
The Serenity Prayer is the common name for a prayer authored by the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr. It has been adopted by Alcoholics Anonymous and other twelve-step programs. The best-known form is:
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.
Though clearly circulating in oral form earlier, the earliest established date for a written form of the prayer is various versions printed in newspaper articles in the early 1930s by or reporting on talks given by Winnifred Crane Wygal, a pupil and collaborator of Niebuhr's. Wygal included this version of the prayer in her 1940 book, We Plan Our Own Worship Services, attributing it to Reinhold Niebuhr.
