Food For Thought-daily meditations 9-11
In Step Eleven, we are "praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power tro carry that out." How that simplifies our prayer! We do not have to worry about aksing for the right things in the right way. We simply pray that we may know God's will and be given the power to do it.
The Step is closely related to Step THree, since we are leaving the decisions upto God. He knows better than we what is best for us to have and to do. We make ourselves available to His direction without attaching conditions and clauses about whay we will and will not do.
This kind of prayer frees us from much worry and anxiety. We accept abstinence as God's will for us, since without abstinence we are powerless to do much of anything. Beyond that, we are prepared to life each day as opur Higher Power gives it to us, trusting that He will show us His will supply us with the Power that we need.
THis is my Prayer, Lord.
"Failure is an EVENT, it is not a person – yesterday really did end
night, and today is your brand new day..."
The sun always rises, and a new day begins.
