Original Serenity Prayer
(for any who never attended a 12 step program of any kind)

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

Serenity Prayer for Poker Players
by Stump Parrish

God grant me the ability
to fold the rags I'm dealt;
courage to play the cards I should;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Playing one hand at a time;
Enjoying each pair as it comes;
Accepting donks as the pathway to the final table;
Taking as we must, the bad beats
in this game , that are a part of it;
Trusting that the odds will make it right
if I hang around long enough;
That I will rake the big stacks on occasion
and be granted the bracelet at the end
of the tourney.
Amen.
