The Ninth Step Prayer

The Ninth Step Prayer, adapted from pgs. 78-80 of the Big Book Alcoholics Anonymous (and a hat tip to!)

“God give me the strength and direction to do the right thing no matter what the consequences may be. Help me to consider others and not harm them in any way. Help me to consult with others before I take any actions that would cause me to be sorry. Help me to not repeat such behaviors. Show me the way of Patience, Tolerance, Kindliness, and Love and help me live the spiritual life. AMEN”

      In 25 years sober in this program, I have never seen this prayer. I thought I had read it all. Thanks for posting this.
