بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِي

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِي

Lord,

Grant us the serenity to accept things we cannot change;
the courage to change the things we can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

for certainly You are the all Knowing, the most Wise.
we are only hoping for Your mercy and compassion,
it is only to You that we complain of our weaknesses,
our shame; our wrongs, be it open or secret;

O Lord,
Let not our hearts deviate from the Truth.

Aid us for certainly only You are the aider;
Give us success for only from You comes success;
Forgive us for only You are the forgiver;
and Bless us O You who bestows blessing,
and we ask of You for sustenance, for certainly You are the Giver.

O Lord,
Grant us the remembrance to remember always; lest we forget.

One of my favorite prayers :) It is called the Serenity prayer, and was written by Reinhold Niebuhr. Here is a link to it on wikipedia:
