Let me not expect easy solutions to my problems. Make me realize that many of my difficulties are my own fault, created by my own reactions to the happenings in my daily life. I ask only to be guided to a better way.
Dear Lord, thank You for the strength I need to endure the trials of today. I choose this moment to give You my burdens and I claim Your promise to hear my cry for help. You lead. I will follow.
(Adapted from the January 6th readings in One Day at a Time in Al-Anon and Search My Heart, O God, by Kay Arthur)
