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

3rd 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.

May I do Thy will always

Amen  

 

7th Step Prayer

 

My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me,

good & bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single

defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to

you & my fellows. Grant me strength, as I go out from here to do your bidding. 

 

11th Step Prayer

 

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.
