God I am so thankful for your loving kindness towards me.
I want to reflect kindness in my every word, my every deed.
When I am tempted I think on your grace that is so kind and available to me.
I have to live it, I have to share it.
Can you remove any of the blocks manmade and self made that keep me from living out complete kindness
Thank you that I don’t react the way the world reacts.
Help me to take a breath, a pause and think on what you would have me do.
God I am willing that you would have all of me. the good and the bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows.
Let my whole life be a testament to your good will,
I want to be an instrument of your love and your peace and a breath of kindness every where I go. And so it is.
Note about this affirmation. The highlighted prayer above comes from the AA big book and is an important part of the recovery and the continuous recovery of those that have been addicted. The beauty of this prayer is that it works for each of us. When I get out of God’s way, he is able to use me, the best parts of me to be of service to him and my fellow man. I am so thankful for my husband, Hugh’s big book with the smell of leather and cigarettes and many underlined places. He did not just underline those he lived them out in our home and our community. I will never stop thanking God for that!!!!!
