Twelve Steps to Spiritual Awakening by Herb K.
Many of the people who are in recovery have found that the 12 step prayers not only aid in helping you find your own higher power, but that the 12 step prayers also bring a feeling of serenity and hope. There are more prayers, besides the 12 step prayers, that are quite common in AA, and in other recovery programs as well. See this page for more prayers. Ninth Step Prayer Higher Power, I pray for the right attitude to make my amends, Being ever mindful not to harm others in the process. What blocks some alcoholics and addicts from achieving serenity is this intense desire to achieve a sense of absolute control—an impossibility for human beings.
This need for control has two aspects: First, the attempt to control the behavior of others, a strategy that addicts cling to despite its repeated failure; and second, the attempt to control feelings by medicating them with mood-altering chemicals. Both strategies are doomed to failure.

Ironically, the need to control may also be a response to the unmanageability caused by the out-of-control use of alcohol or other drugs. And the vicious cycle continues until the addict is able to accept that there will always be hardship in life and external circumstances beyond his or her ability to change. The prayer points us to examine our inner life and to understand that we can influence our feelings and our emotional health through the things we can control—our thinking and our actions.
By focusing on those two factors, we strengthen our capacity for courage, the final quality promised in the Serenity Prayer. The Serenity Prayer opens a wide door to spiritual growth and healing, one that embraces people of all faiths, backgrounds and beliefs about God. It offers spiritual truths and practical wisdom to addicts and non-addicts alike.
People who learn to live and breathe this prayer in their daily lives discover, in the balance between acceptance and change, the precious gift of serenity—a gift that is available to us with each new day and enlightens our lifelong, spiritual journey.
