The following are the prayers that appear through the big book of alcoholics anonymous and 12×12. I have took it upon myself to updated this prayers, to the language that is easier for me to understand. You can find the original text here. I’ve also listed the serenity prayer and St. Francis Prayer first, since they do not require understanding of how AA works.

Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at the time and enjoying one moment at a time.

St Francis Prayer

God, make me a channel of your peace, so 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.
God, grant that I may seek to comfort rather than to be comforted; to understand, rather than to be understood; to love, rather than to be loved. For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

Third Step Prayer

God, I offer myself to you — to build with me and to do with me as you will. Relieve me of the bondage of self, so that I may better do your will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of your power, your love, and your way of life. May I do your will always!

Seventh Step Prayer

God, I am now willing ready for you to have all of me, good & bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you & my fellows. Grant me strength, as I go out from here to follow your will.
