The prayer was brought to the attention of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1939 by an early member. The prayer was liked by Bill W(William Griffith Wilson), co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous and members of that time. It was printed out, handed around and has been part of AA ever since. It has also been used in Narcotics Anonymous and other Twelve Step programs. Reinhold Niebuhr's first wrote this prayer for a sermon in 1934. He is quoted as saying in the 1950 Grapevine the prayer "might have been spooking about for years, perhaps centuries, but I don't think so. I honestly do believe that I wrote it myself. The slightly edited Alcoholics Anonymous version below omits the word "grace" from the first line, shortens some of the remainder, and sets out the prayer in the form of verses: 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.
