The 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!

Alcoholics Anonymous

The prayer most associated with AA is the serenity prayer. Similar to the the third step prayer, the serenity prayer asks god for strength and courage to accept life as it is.
