Prayer in Our Mother-Tongue
Beginning of Day Prayer (BB 86-87)
O God, direct my thinking, so that it may be divorced from Self-Pity and from dishonest and self-seeking motives. Let me make every decision and begin every action in You and continue it only thru Your Inspiration. Throughout this day, show me the next step to take and to trust in Your Care of me and my problems. Free me from all self-will and self-sufficiency. Help me to neither seek nor pray for selfish ends.
3rd 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, 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!". (BB p 63)
