Recovery Prayer

January 12, 2018 by Kayce L.

Thank you for keeping me straight yesterday. Please help me stay straight today.

For the next twenty-four hours, I pray for knowledge of your will for me only, and the power to carry that through. Please free my thinking of self-will, self-seeking, dishonesty, and wrong motives. Send me the right thought, word, and action. Show me what my next step should be.

In times of doubt and indecision, please send me your inspiration and guidance. I ask that you might help me work through all my problems, to your glory and honor.

This prayer is a recovery prayer. It can take us through any situation. In the days ahead, we'll explore the ideas in it. If we pray with prayer, we can trust it has been answered with a yes. Today trust that God will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Do your part, work your 12 steps and let God do the rest.

This prayer is based on a section of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

    Thanks Kayce & Thomas...I have been reading this daily for encouragement. I am facing a new situation! It requires waiting & powerlessness. I went to my Monday Meditation meeting & was asked to lead. I did & that is my God helping me to stay where my feet are & share from my heart. This too shall pass comes to mind. That is my hope. I will open up more if need be in time. I will keep praying this prayer & trust that God is doing his/her part & I will do mine. Focusing on having an attitude of gratitude no matter what! And not picking up that ‘first drink’. May God’s Peace that passes understanding be with us all in 2018!!

    Gayle I will be thinking of you today. I love the way we can "circle the wagon" for each other and have the wonderful feeling that we are never alone. We care and are here. Best wishes for a resolution.
