The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
The Twelve Steps won’t work for anyone unless they are practiced. That’s why so many veterans of this program work the Steps over and over. It’s a good habit, and good habits – just like bad ones – strengthen with use and time.
Prayer is an important part of this program that becomes as regular as habit, and it’s a habit worth getting into. Communing with God at a similar time, or times, every day brings us power for daily living and provides us with a spiritual reserve. Daily contact with our Higher Power gives us special insights into our own actions and helps us look with love on those around us.
Today I will strive to make prayer a habit.
