An old mountain man’s prayer: “Lord, I don’t ask for a faith that would move yonder mountain. I can take enough dynamite and move it, if it needs movin’. I pray, Lord, for enough faith to move me.
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it’s me.
variation of an excerpt from “The Serenity Prayer” by Reinhold Neibuhr
