Step 7-Humbly Asked Him To Remove Our Shortcomings

The Seventh Step Prayer

from page 76 of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

My Creator, 

I am now willing that You should have all of me,
good and bad.
I pray that You now remove from me
every single defect of character which stands in the way
of my usefulness to You and my fellows.
Grant me strength, as I go out from here,
to do Your bidding.


“Faith without works is dead.”
