AA 12 Steps and 12 Traditions

Step 11.

‘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.’

Q1. What is prayer: raising the heart and mind to God. Write on that. Have you experienced prayer as raising of your heart and mind to God. And if not, would you like to try to do that?

In a sense this also includes meditation. So take the step 11 prayer and your writing you to Quiet Time. Take the first sentence in question 2 today (and the following sentences for each of the next seven days).

Q2. Lord make me a channel of Thy peace. You have already written on that. Bring
what you wrote to Quiet Time and say: ‘God I want to bring my heart and my mind to You. Would You help me to understand what this means in my life.

Q3. Where there is hatred may I bring love – tomorrow do the process with this.

Q4. Where there is wrong, I may I bring the spirit of forgiveness – Saturday

Q5. That where there is is error, I may bring truth – Sunday

Q6. That where there is doubt, I may bring faith – Monday

Q7. That where there is despair, I may bring hope – Tuesday

Q8. That where there are shadows, I may bring light – Wednesday

Q9. What is the right thing to ask for, in which you are in greatest need?
(The step 6 and 7 cards you wrote mean you already know the right things
about yourself that God gave you so many months ago).
God help me to live Your will and please give me the power to carry it out.

Q10. Do you look for chances to be useful and helpful?
Think about your day and how you structure it.

God Thy will not mine be done. Bless it or block it.
