From 12 Step Spirituality

Today I humbly ask my Higher Power

For the grace to find the space between my impulse and my action;

To let flow a cooling breeze when I would respond with heat;

To interrupt fierceness with gentle peace;

To accept the moment which allows judgment to become discernment;

To defer to silence when my tongue would rush to attack or defend.

I promise to watch for every opportunity to turn toward my Higher Power for guidance.

I know where this power is; it resides within me, as clear as a mountain brook, hidden in the hills- it is the unsuspected Inner Resource.

I thank my Higher Power for this world of light and truth.

I see when I allow it to direct my vision.

I trust it today and believe it trusts me to make all efforts to find the right thought and action today.
