Third Step Prayer
God, I offer myself to Thee – To build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of Life.
The 7th Step Prayer
My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and
bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of
character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my
fellows. Grant me strength, as I go out from here to do Your bidding.
The 11th Step Prayer (Prayer of St. Francis)
Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,
that where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that where there is error, I may bring truth;
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.
God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change,
courage to change things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference
Set Aside Prayer
God, today help me set aside
everything I think I know about You,
everything I think I know about myself,
everything I think I know about others,
and everything I think I know about my own recovery
so I may have an open mind and a new experience with all these things.
Please help me see the truth.
