Eleventh Step Prayer
Higher Power, as I understand You, I pray to keep my connection with You Open and clear from the confusion of daily life. Through my prayers and meditation I ask especially for Freedom from self-will, rationalization, and wishful thinking. I pray for the guidance of correct thought and positive action. Your will Higher Power, not mine, be done.
The fried of mine D. asked me to post her life stories to the steps (I am going to Russian meetings too and I was need to translate it).
The Elevenths Step is my favorite step of prayers and meditations. It was only then when I realized that God loves silence, that I, as an addict, need to slow down, feel “here and now,” to live in the present moment, do the things that are under my nose and give the rest to God. This step is about praying, asking for faith, asking to show me the next step, about deepen and strengthen the contact with him, and remembering every day that I am not in control of my life. There is a God, and it is not me. Calling God in every case, that was and remains my exercise of this step. God, help me.
