The Serenity Prayer, most commonly attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr, expresses devotion and belief in God’s ability to provide serenity, courage, and wisdom when grappling with the faults the stars throw at us. The surrendering of self this prayer suggests highlights the theme introduced by the title of TFIOS; there are faults in our stars. The injustices suffered are not all faults of our own, but faults of a higher force, be it God, or the universe, the simply complex and inexplicable nature of surviving in a world that was not built for humans. The Serenity Prayer relinquishes power to God, and therefore relinquishes power to a greater force believed to be responsible for the faults in our stars. This reveals a belief that while the universe may be responsible for the flaws and failures of life, the universe can provide humanity the serenity, courage, and wisdom to continue onward despite these flaws. The Serenity Prayer acknowledges the shortcomings of being human, and seeks to accept help from a force more powerful than humanity. The humility of existing in a vast universe is an inherent aspect of being human, regardless of religious affiliation or spiritual beliefs.
