I heard this variation of the third step prayer on an OA phone meeting recently and thought I would share it with you, my friends in recovery.
I offer my _________ (fill in the blank: food addiction, compulsive eating, fear, other character defect) to you to build with it and to do with it as you will. Relieve me of the bondage of _________ (fill in the blank as before), that I may better do your will. Take away my ___________ (fill in the blank as before), that victory over it/them may bear witness to those I would help of your power, love and way of life.
May I do your will always.
May the peace of this holiday season flow ever so slightly into your recovery. I wish you all the best.
