Prayer Is Asking

lanai (10)

.

We may ask

for ourselves, however,

if others will be helped.

We are careful

never to pray

for our own selfish ends.”

.

BB,    p. 87

.

For the drunk in early recovery prayer

is often a foreign word, an exercise in futility.

The Big Book offers a few prayers that help

those who want to get sober

make their way through the Steps of A. A..

The meetings, the fellowship, a sponsor

also help to guide the recovering soul

through the journey of learning how to pray

in a way that gives one the strength and courage

to stay sober, one day at a time.

For the long timer who has learned to pray,

every thought and every action is a prayer

that seeks to find and do the will

of a loving Higher Power.

Today, pray often.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

.

ME and the Boss

.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
