Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Third Step Prayer

God, I offer myself to Thee – to build with me and do with 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, p. 63)

Submission Prayer

Higher Power, I give this day to you.
Establish the work of my hands,
the steps of my feet,
the words of my mouth,
the direction of my gaze,
the thoughts of my mind,
and the attitude of my heart.
