The Skit Guys break down the meaning of the “Serenity Prayer” in this hilarious, yet insightful video. Chances are good that you’ve seen this prayer floating around the internet and have maybe even prayed it yourself. The prayer has become widely known because it is used by Alcoholics Anonymous and many other rehabilitation programs.

Serenity Prayer

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.

Attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
