serenity - the absence of mental stress or anxiety
The Serenity Prayer is the common name for an originally untitled prayer written by the theologian Reinhold Niebuhr in the 1930s or early 1940s.
God, give us grace to accept with serenity
This is how it looks in Norwegian
The philosopher W.W. Bartley juxtaposes Niebuhr's prayer with a Mother Goose rhyme expressing a similar sentiment.
