Did You Pray



“I have talked

to many alcoholics

who have gone back

to drinking and I

always ask them:

“Did you pray for sobriety

the day you took your first drink?”

Not one of them said yes.”


Daily Reflections,   p. 299



from the bad habits spurred on by John Barleycorn

to a new way of living that is spiritually motivated

by honesty, open-mindedness and willingness.

If you have had the obsession and compulsion to drink removed

and you can humbly admit that a power greater than yourself

caused that miracle to happen, why should you not practice

that good habit every day ? ? ?

Today, be grateful, be thankful, pray and

let your Higher Power know

that you need His guidance,

one more day at a time.

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.
