‘Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.’
AA 12 Steps and 12 Traditions: page 104
When you make a mistake be honest, teachable and humble.
Look up: persistence.
Q1. Where have you recently thought that you knew what God’s will was for somebody else. While you may not have said anything were you thinking “I can do this for this for them, they could do that, etc”….Write on this.
Q2. Look at your life. Are you trying to play God? e.g. with your sponsees. Do you want recovery for them more than they do?
Q3. Write down: God, Your will not mine be done.
What does that bring up for you ?
Q4. What is your definition of a God incidence? Write three notable incidences that you have had.
Q5. We have found that the actual results of prayer are beyond question.
Do you believe that? Have you experienced it?
If this is not the case perhaps you have not been going to Quiet Time with an open heart and mind. Whatever it is, use the formula: truth, humility and teachability, take this to Quiet Time and then share with a kind compassionate buddy. Make an action plan.
If you are not willing, take that to Quiet Time and ask for the willingness to be willing. And maybe bring the same question to God tomorrow.
Q6. Have you found peace of mind that can stand firm in the face of difficult circumstances, or do you fly off the handle?
Peace of mind action plan: Pray Plan Prepare Protect (your peace of mind)
