“A PRICELESS GIFT ~ I am learning to let go and let God, to have a mind that is open and a heart that is willing to receive God’s grace in all my affairs; in this way I can experience the peace and freedom that come as a result of surrender. It has been proven that an act of surrender, originating in desperation and defeat, can grow into an act of faith, and that faith means freedom and victory.” ~ July 21, Daily Reflections – A book of reflections by AA members for AA members
We may need help to let go of our old ideas. With God’s grace, all is possible. This prayer encourages us to set aside all that we think we know and open our minds to new possibilities.
“Almighty God, whose word is authority and power and whose way is love, grant unto us today clear minds, understanding hearts, and willing spirits so that we may wisely appropriate your word of truth. In the name of Christ, Amen.” ~ The fourth Sunday after Epiphany – A Guide to Prayer
