Daily Meditations From the A. A. Book: Twenty-Four Hours a Day

September 25, 2013

God holding a man

You are never alone with your struggles with addiction with God beside you!

All thoughts, meditations and prayers for the day, come from the 1975 edition of Twenty-Four Hours a Day published by Hazelden Publishing. It is a small booklet written for AA members.

“The Serenity Prayer”

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

and the wisdom to know the difference. 

Thought for the Day

Some more things I do not miss since becoming dry: Wondering if the car is in the garage and how I got home. Struggling to remember where I am​ and what I did since my last conscious moment. Trying to delay getting off to work, and wondering how I will look when I get there. Dreading the day ahead of me. I’m quite​ sure that I don’t miss these things, am I not?

Meditation for the Day

You cannot believe in God and keep your selfish ways. The self shrivels up and dies and upon the soul becomes stamped​ God’s image​. The gradual elimination​ of selfishness in the growth of love for God and your fellow human beings is the goal of lif​e. At first​, you have only a faint likeness to the Divine, but the picture grows and takes on more and more of the likeness oGod​od until those who see you can see in your some of the power of God’s grace at work in ​human life.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may develop the faint likeness I have to the Divine I pray that others may see in me some of the power of God’s​ grace at work.
