11th Step Prayer - Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions p99
Lord, make me a Channel of Thy Peace -
that where there is Hatred I may bring Love
that where there is Wrong I may bring the Spirit of Forgiveness
that where there is Discord I may bring Harmony
that where there is Error I may bring Truth
that where there is Doubt I may bring Faith
that where there is Despair I may bring Hope
that where there are Shadows I may bring Light
that where there is Sadness I may bring Joy ...
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to Comfort than to be Comforted
to Understand than to be Understood,
to Love than be Loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that One finds.
It is by Forgiving that One is Forgiven.
It is by dying that One awakens to Eternal Life...
Needed to add just incase : "It is by dying that One awakens to Eternal Life .. " DOES NOT MEAN physical death so please don't go "chew through your wrists now" thinking you're going to awaken and be okay physically! These words explain it better ............. You don’t die into it; you awaken into it.
In Love and Light
