Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with GOD as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will, and the power to carry that out.

"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."
(Psalm 19:14)

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly..." (Col. 3:16)

The 11th step allows us to commit to the 3rd step on a daily basis. Remember that God is one that you understand. It can be whatever God works for you personally. Many recovering alcoholics and addicts find meditation is a welcome relief from stress and tension in their daily lives. It allows us to reach a natural calm that we once tried to reach by drinking or using drugs unsuccessfully.


Prayer keeps us in touch with the guidance of our higher power, whatever this higher power may be to us. If you speak to 100 recovering people, you may find you hear as many as 100 versions of what God is.


"I grew up with a traditional concept of a Christian God, and that is still comfortable for me. It felt like I was putting on a pair of old gloves. I'd been away so long, and now I was home."
John G.


In step 3, we decided to look for a new manager, because we were unhappy, addicted, obsessive etc. We thought, “Well, I tried everything my way, and the result was pain! So, that is where I suppose, humility starts to come into our lives. Whether you believe in a Christian God, or a Higher power, then this step will work. If your mind is full of neurotic thoughts then they have to be replaced with a belief system, a different attitude. I love the serenity prayer.

&

The St. Francis Prayer.


I state acceptance, what is acceptance but a way of stopping anger? Remember acceptance does not mean you agree, it means you stop the thoughts in your head Your God wants you to be happy right now. The present is a result of the past, and the future will be a result of the present.


Conscious contact means being aware, mindful, and awake to align ourselves with God, as we understand Him. We gain all-knowing knowledge and perception of the way to truth - our destined path to success, happiness, and peace of mind. To have conscious contact with God is to be alert with our inner essence. We gain awareness and attentiveness to our chosen path to freedom. We gain the familiarity and knowledge to live in accordance with God's will for our lives. When we become aware of the Light of God's love through prayer and meditation, we become at peace with ourselves, our life's direction, and of our new-found life within. To experience conscious contact brings with it a great amount of healing elements that will give us the serenity that we seek. Our life's path becomes a positive, insightful, and joyous adventure.


Our Higher Power resides within, but we acquire the knowledge of His will from our inner being, and from without. Deep within us we find the serenity that we once thought was impossible to achieve. Our Higher Power has been with us from the start. He has been guiding us thus far through the Steps, and now our Higher Power desires for us to strengthen the conscious contact necessary to continue growing in our recovery, among many other things.

Hope you like these common "Prayers," I know they have made huge changes in my life as helped me to keep God focused. This site, These are just sections from papers over the years, I have been doing this since 1985 when I was the Spiritual Advisor for a center and the development director for another over the years. I learned that recovery can take on a great number of faces for different people. Although, one thing I have always believed is Faith Based Recovery has an indwelling success rate unlike any other form. However, I talk to people all over the world and meet people who's belief system in not as mine, we do not judge people, we do not categorize people in little groups, what is important is your recovery regardless of your sex, religion, or national origin. Sure it would be nice to know that everyone was in a personal relationship with The God our Savior Creator and Salvation, this site is meant to help you establish, (If you have not done so already), and or keep a strong recovery life daily. A tool. I have been greatly blessed, in that, God has opened doors in other countries around the world for us. Many of you know already, for those that do not, I have a disc & Nerve disease, it is real hard for me just to be able to do what normal people do everyday, I say this to say that, it may take me some time but I usually get around to getting things done. I do write for more than one on-line site, if you don't see activity here does not mean that I will not get around to posting papers, there are time when I get stuck in bed for periods.
This site is meant for you... You matter, don't let anyone ever lead you to believe differently. God made you unlike anyone else, even though we kind-of look similar to others, there are very many great things about us God made just for us / in us.. Remember that! And Live accordingly. :) :)
