February 15, 2010

Here is today's prayer:

Lord, I am far too much influenced by what people think of me;

Which means that I am always pretending to be either richer or smarter than I really am. Please prevent me from trying to attract attention.

Don't let me gloat over praise on the one hand and be discouraged by criticism on the other, nor let me waste time weaving the most imaginary situations in which the heroic, charming, witty person present is myself.

Show me how to be humble of heart. Amen.

Taken from the 12 Step Prayer Book Second Edition (italics my addition), pg 22.
