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

We in Alcoholics Anonymous do not try to chart the path for the human soul or try to lay out a blueprint of the workings of faith, as one might plan a charity drive.  We do tell the newcomer that we have renewed our faith in a Higher Power.  In the telling, our faith is further renewed.  We believe that faiths always close at hand, waiting for those who will listen to the heartbeat of the spirit.  We believe there is a voice for good in the universe, and that if we link up with this force, we are carried onward to a new life.  Am I in this steam of goodness?

Meditation for the Day

God will protect you from the forces of evil, if you will rely on Him.  You can face all things through the power of God which strengthens you.  Once God has set on you His stamp and seal of ownership, all His strength will serve and protect you.  Remember that you are a child of the Father.  Realize that the Father’s help is always ready and available to all His children, so that they can face anything.  God will do all that is necessary for your spiritual well-being, if you will let Him live His way.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may rely on God, as I go throughout this day. I pray that I may feel deeply secure, no matter what happens to me.
