For many of us a practice of prayer does not come naturally. Yet, it is such a core part of the twelve step program that we are compelled to make it our practice. The eleventh step states “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”. And when we so pray, we are consistently encouraged by the results. Today I am determined to work a complete program and so – today, I will pray.
