PTM.org’s Breakfast with Brad – Riboflavin, Faith & Step 3 Surrender
In which Brad ponders what Riboflavin and Faith are, checking in with 12-Step Recovery’s all-important 3rd step: “Surrender.”
Step 3 – “Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God.”
Step 3 prayer: “God, I offer myself to you, to build with me and to do with me as you will. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do your will. Take away my difficulties [obsessions], that victory over them may bear witness of your power, your love, and your way of life to those I would help. May I always do your will!”
“We thought well before taking this step making sure we were ready; that we could at last abandon ourselves utterly to Him” (A.A. Big Book, p. 63).
