Prayers

The Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Third Step Prayer, Life with Hope

Higher Power,

I have tried to control the uncontrollable for far too long.

I ask that you take this burden from me.

I acknowledge that my life is unmanageable.

I ask for your care and guidance.

Grant me honesty, courage, humility, and serenity, to face that which keeps me from you and others.

I give this life to you to do with as you will.

Set Aside Prayer

God,

Please help me set aside

everything I think I know

about myself, my disease,

these steps, and especially You;

for an open mind

and a new experience

with myself, my disease,

these steps, and especially You.

An Eleventh Step Prayer

Higher Power,

Please help me.

Help me learn what I am supposed to learn,

Help me do what I am supposed to do,

Help me be who I am supposed to be.

Stay with me always,

In my hour of deepest despair,

And my hour of greatest joy.

Closing (Unity) Prayer

I put my hand in yours and together we can do what we could never do alone.

No longer is there a sense of hopelessness.

No longer must we each depend upon our own unsteady will power.

We are all together now reaching out our hands for a power and strength, greater than ours.

And, as we join hands we find love and understanding beyond our wildest dreams.

Thanks to Overeaters Anonymous.
