Oh God, watch over me. Be my Higher Power as I strive toward recovery. Permit me to lean on You for strength and guidance. Grant that I may become totally honest about my problem. Touch my soul and spark my spirit into awareness God, that I may see the value of a sober life. Show me the glory of the dawn of a new day and the reward of a sunset and a day well lived. Help me to deal with resentments God, the real curse of my addictive personality. Take from me all hatred, anger, and willfulness, and persuade me to work toward emotional health and maturity that I may fully enjoy the blessings of respectability. In your mercy God, see fit to remove my cravings for that which will destroy me. Keep me ever mindful that alone I am unable to maintain a happy sobriety. Bring me ever closer to You and those who will help me along the way. Most of all God, prompt me to extend my hand to others who still suffer, so that through him or her, I may find You and continued sobriety. Amen.
There of course is the Serenity Prayer, which is used by many addiction programs like Alcoholics Anonymous but was originally written by Reinhold Niebuhr:
God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things that I can;
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
I also saw this prayer somewhere--I don't remember anymore where it came from or who wrote it:
My Heavenly Father,
You are great and holy. I am weak and needy. I need your strength, Lord, for mine is gone. Pour your healing oil over me. Let it flow from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. As my body detoxifies, may the anointing of Jesus cover and protect me. Lead me into a small activity that will keep me busy helping someone else, and take my mind off of myself. As I do for others in your name, Lord, blanket me with your healing. I ask this with a penitent heart. I thank you, my Heavenly Father. I ask this in your Son’s holy name, Jesus, amen.
