AA Opening Prayer

Opening Prayer

Our Father, we come to you as a friend.  You have said that wherever two or three are gathered in your name, there you will be in the midst.  We believe you are here with us now and this is something you would have us do, and that it has your blessing.  We pledge with you always to be honest and to search our hearts for weaknesses and errors that we may deserve your help.  We believe that you want us to be real partners with you in this business of living accepting our full responsibilities and certain that the rewards will be freedom, growth, and happiness.  For this we are grateful.  We ask you at all times to guide us; to help us daily to come closer to you, granting us new ways of living and of gratitude, Amen.
