Step Eleven suggests prayer and meditation.
We shouldn’t be shy on this matter of prayer.
Better men than we are using it constantly.
It works, if we have the proper attitude and work at it.

I’m Deb and I’m an alcoholic. Briefly, I try to thank God frequently as I journey through my day. This practice makes it possible to pray without ceasing. If I’m serious about learning to pray continually the best approach is to thank God in every situation. Moreover, a grateful attitude makes it easier for me to communicate with him. When my mind is occupied with thanking him, I have no time for worrying or complaining. If I practice thankfulness consistently, negative thought patterns will gradually grow weaker and weaker. Thank you for allowing me to share.
