Eleventh Step Prayer
 
Lord, make me a channel of Thy peace;
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.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather
to comfort, than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.

For it is by self forgetting, that one finds.
It is by forgiving, that one is forgiven.
It is by dying, that one awakens to Eternal Life.

Grant me strength, as I go out from here, to do your bidding.

Amen.
