Step Eleven says : Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Today is a great day to practice what we have been talking about all week. Here is a prayer you can write in your notebook.
- Prayer for Step Eleven : Dear God, I pray to keep my connection with you open and clear from the confusion of daily life. Through my prayers and meditations, I ask especially for freedom from self-will, rationalization, and wishful thinking. I pray for the guidance of correct thought and positive action. You will, Higher Power, not mine, be done.
Take some time today to get alone and get quiet. Seek to connect with God about what He wants for you. Take some time to share your heart with Him. If you are uncomfortable or unfocused to do that in your mind, write it out in your notebook. Take some deliberate time to read (one of the resources or some pages from the Bible) and then sit silently and listen to Him.
Consider what this looks like to incorporate into your daily routine. What time is best for you? Is there a space you enjoy? How much time do you need? Ask God for wisdom to know His will for your daily contact with Him.
