Prayer for my stressed mind & soul

It's just Monday, but it feels like I've been working for how many days already. All my energy were used up and I haven't even accomplished all the tasks I listed in my MONDAY TO-DO LIST. =( And tomorrow, will also be another busy day. It's the last day of the month and I have to finish the payroll. Poor me.
I've been trying to memorize the Serenity Prayer. It's like an encouragement to my stressed mind, body and soul. It's a prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr.
I want to share this to all of you.

God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
Amen.
