This is something that was posted on one of my chats. I liked it so much, I decided to post it on the blog.
Morning routine (first thing when you wake up…BEFORE the addict has time to lie and tell you there’s no time…takes me two minutes and feel free to adjust wording for what works for you)
Recite steps 1 through 3
- I admit I’m powerless over ____, God; my life is unmanageable without you.
- I’m coming to believe that a Power greater than myself, You God, can restore me to sanity.
- I make the decision to turn my will (my thinking) and my life (my actions) over to your care, God.
Then recite the 3rd step prayer:
“God, I offer myself to Thee—to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self (self-centeredness and self-pity), that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of Life. May I do Thy will always!” Then ask God “what is your will for me today, God?”
