Prayers of Recovery

 
imagePrayer is a vital part of any recovery.  The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous says, that "lack of power was our dilemma" and that we "needed to find a Power by which we could live."  Prayers in the evening and in the morning are part of Step work.  If one isn't praying, they are relying on their own power.  Here are some prayers that can be prayed.




7th Step Prayer

 
God, I offer myself to Thee To build with me & 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 & Thy way of lifeGod, I offer myself to Thee To build with me & 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 & Thy way of life.

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.

 

Amen
