AA Thought for the Day
August 31, 2021
Those of us who have come to make regular use of prayer would no
more do without it than we would refuse air, food, or sunshine. And for
the same reason. When we refuse air, light, or food, the body suffers.
And when we turn away from meditation and prayer, we likewise deprive
our minds, our emotions, and our intuitions of vitally needed support.
As the body can fail its purpose for lack of nourishment, so can the soul.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Eleven) p. 97
Thought to Ponder
Prayer asks the question. Meditation listens for the answer.
