Recovery Prayer

October 25, 2014 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.

    I can’t live without pot. I can’t live with pot.

    • Thomas Cromer says:

      Yes you can Tim pray for it you will find peace.!!!!!!

    • Keith M says:

      Tim, change what you are saying just a little. Say this, “I can live without Pot today”. Don’t worry about tomorrow or any other day. Just work on today. I know you can live without it for just 24 hours. Start with a few minutes, then an hour, then two and so on. Before you know it you will have put together 24 hours. Then it is a matter of just repeating. One Day At A Time.

    Tim you can be addicted to pot, but take a break from it today. That’s what I’m doing with alcohol. I did it yesterday and now I’m trying it again for today. The recovery prayer is amazing. I’m writing it down on paper and keeping it with me all day today. 2 days is a miracle.

  8. Tim says:

    I went back to the program today. I got fired from a great job in 1998 and divorced from a great woman and separated from my kids in 2012. I want to stop smoking pit and AA is the way. Thank you all for your prayers.
