•  G-d, grant me the wisdom to know the difference
between what I can change
and what I cannot change.

•  Then, grant me the courage to change what I can change,

•  and the serenity to accept what I cannot change.

— based on the conventional Serenity Prayer
which is attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
American theologian
