Third Step Prayer  God, I offer myself to Thee … to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will.

O blessed Lord, You ministered to all who came to You. Look
with compassion upon all who through addiction have lost
 their health and freedom. Restore to them the assurance of

 them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery; and to
 those who care for them, give patient understanding and
 persevering love. Amen.

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and He himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. James 1:12-15
