Sounds like the serenity prayer

It sounds a bit like the Serenity Prayer: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change... the courage to change the things I can... and wisdom to know the difference".

Is it called the serenity prayer? It is attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi, it says all.

Anyway, I find the Assisi prayer is actually addressed to the mind as a reminder of deconditioning while the above which is also very beautiful, truly addressed to the lord, asking for grace from beyond the scope of the conditioned mind.

Serenity prayer

It's called that in some quarters, e.g. alcoholics anonymous and 12-step programs of recovery from addictions.
