The Set Aside Prayer

An old sponsor of mine (and I've been through a few on my journey) told me to write this is the front of my Big Book. I was going through the typical disasterous relapse cycle after ten years of sobriety, and this one little entry opened my eyes. It was the one single thing that broke the barrier holding me back from a full recovery program. It's a compilation of things said throughout the Big Book and I'm sure it's been posted on SR over the years, but I think it bears repeating.


"Dear God, please set aside everything I
think I know about myself, my disease, the
Big Book, the 12 Steps, the Program, the
Fellowship, the people in the fellowship, all
spiritual terms, and especially about you God,
so that I may have an open mind and a new
experience with all these things. Please help
me see the Truth. Amen"
