AA Thought for the Day
August 6, 2018
Prayer and Meditation
But we recoiled from meditation and prayer as obstinately as the scientist
who refused to perform a certain experiment lest it prove his pet theory wrong.
Of course we finally did experiment, and when unexpected results followed, we felt
different; in fact we knew different; and so we were sold on meditation and prayer.
And that, we have found, can happen to anybody who tries. It has been well said that
“almost the only scoffers at prayer are those who never tried it enough.”
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 97
Thought to Ponder
Trying to pray is praying.
P U S H = Pray Until Something Happens.
Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
