Serenity Prayer

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.


11th Step Prayer/Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

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. Amen.


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.


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.

  1. very helpful prayers but I still need a sponsor. I still haven't found one at the meeting in my area. I don't think they like me very much
