AA Thought for the Day
March 31, 2021
We liked A.A. all right, and were quick to say that it had done miracles. 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, (Step Eleven) p. 97
Thought to Ponder
Trying to pray is praying.
H O P E = Hang On; Pray Everyday.
