The "Set Aside Prayer"
Last night I watched a podcast with David as the guest, in which the host was both a Course student and also a longterm 12 stepper.
She shared a beautiful prayer that I feel inspired to share. She picked it up from her 12 step journey and it's called the 'set aside prayer':
God, today help me set aside everything I think I know about You,
everything I think I know about myself,
everything I think I know about others,
and everything I think I know about my own recovery so I may have an open mind and a new experience with all these things. Please help me see the truth.
I think it is a great template for prayer, I have been substituting the specifics in the prayer for whatever seems relevant to me in the moment. It feels like a great reminder of setting the purpose upfront of having a mind that is open to a new and healing experience, particularly in areas where I have a strong 'I know mind'.
Here is the podcast 🙏✨💗
