Serenity Prayer (i autistic version)

Main Page | Serenity Prayer | Prayer of Practicality | A Time for Everything | New Year's Resolution


Higher Power Beyond,
Grant me the serenity to accept what I cannot change;
The 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 my hardships as the pathway to peace;

Higher Power within me,
Grant me the serenity to accept the people I encounter;
The courage to feel their emotions and situation;
And the wisdom to know how to heal us both

Embracing people one at a time;
Deeply touching their hearts and mine;
Accepting my anger as the pathway to forgiveness

Higher Power within me,
Grant me the serenity to accept both my light and darkness;
The courage to heal my own painful wounds;
And the wisdom to know how to heal those I have hurt

Understanding people one at a time;
Living with in their troubled world;
Accepting their pain as the pathway to healing us all

For this world is neither sinful nor pure;
Just being naturally as it is;
May I forgive this world; and myself
So that I can embrace all of it

I shall surrender to my heart;
Letting it show me the way to joy;
For I trust in my inner wisdom within;

That the world is full of angels;
And I only need to forgive;
For them to reveal their beauty;
And embrace me too

For Planet Earth is my home
The human race is my family
There are no other places to go,
No other salvation to seek;

But only the one within me
The one within my heart
