Nov. 14, 2017 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.
 — Samuel Johnson

The Twelve Steps won’t work for anyone unless they are practiced. That’s why so many veterans of this program work the Steps over and over. It’s a good habit, and good habits – just like bad ones – strengthen with use and time.

Prayer is an important part of this program that becomes as regular as habit, and it’s a habit worth getting into. Communing with God at a similar time, or times, every day brings us power for daily living and provides us with a spiritual reserve. Daily contact with our Higher Power gives us special insights into our own actions and helps us look with love on those around us.

Today I will strive to make prayer a habit.
