Two prayers about acceptance, both from The Oxford Book of Prayer:

The first by Reinholt Niebur 1892-1971

God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things
that cannot be changed.
courage to change the things that should be changed,
and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.

Amen.

The second is adapted from one by Michael Hollings and Etta Gullick

Lord, I thank you for teaching me how to live in the present moment.
In this way I enjoy each simple task as I do it, not think I must rush to the next thing.
Thank you for this, help me always to do everything at Your time and Your speed.

Amen.
