Dear Gumek - thank you for sharing your prayer with us. It reminds me of:

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity to accept
The things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

There is also a less well known, but equally beautiful part:

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as the legend of Jesus showed us, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would like it to be.
Trusting that God will make all things right,
If I but surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely so with Him, forever in the world of light
On the higher and highest levels of life.

Reinhold Niebuhr 1894-1971
