I ASK GOD TO DECIDE
I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 76
Having admitted my powerlessness and made a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God, as I understand Him, I don’t decide which defects get removed, or the order in which defects get removed, or the time frame in which they get removed. I ask God to decide which defects stand in the way of my usefulness to Him and to others, and then I humbly ask Him to remove them.
