This prayer makes it clear that AA is not a self help program, clearly we need God and each other. Can this program work alone with a book?
We place ourselves in a position to receive God’s help by making a decision to abandon our old idea that self will will make us happy. What does surrender to win mean to you?
God should have all of me, the good and the bad. So, we make available to God our strengths and weaknesses, what does this mean?
How has God used your weakness for your good? When I share with someone my weaknesses, it makes us more approachable by the other person.
How has a perceived strength let you down?
