Cool Serenity Prayer

Even though I'm not very religious, this prayer has always resonated with me, especially when I'm down.

I love this too but I wish I believed in a god to pray to.

Agreed. I've often said this prayer when things go bad. Helps put a perspective to things and to focus on what I can change.

I say this every night, before going to sleep. Remind me there are things beyond our control, but a lot that is in our hands,with the tools to challenge them.
