Oh Lord, Watch over this Alcoholic. Be Thou 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, Lord, that I may see the value of a sober life. Show me the glory of the Dawn and a new day and the reward of a Sunset and a day well lived. Help me to deal with resentments, Lord, the real curse of the Alcoholic. 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 Thy mercy, Lord, see fit to remove my cravings for that which will destroy me - alcohol. Keep me ever mindful that alone, I am unable to maintain a hapy sobriety. Bring me ever close to You and those who will help me along the way.

Most of all, prompt me to extend my hand to the Alcoholic who stilll suffers, so that through him or her, I may find You and continue sobriety.
