The following prayers as found in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

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. May I do Thy will always!

Seventh 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. Amen.
