23rd and a Half Psalm
The Lord is my Sponsor I shall not want.
He maketh me go many to meetings.
He leadeth me to sit back, relax and listen with an open mind.
He restoreth my soul, my sanity, and my health.
He leadeth me on paths of not using, serenity and fellowship for mine own sake.
He teacheth me to think, to take it easy, to live and let live, and do first things first.
He maketh me honest, humble and grateful.
He teacheth me to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of despair, frustration, guilt and remorse, I will fear no evil.
For thou art with me; the Program, thy way of life and The Twelve steps, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table for me in the presence of mine enemies; Rationalization, Fear, Self-Pity and Resentment.
Thou annointest my confused mind and jangled nerves with knowledge, understanding and hope.
No longer am I alone; neither am I afraid, nor sick nor helpless.
My cup runneth over.
Surely being clean and serene shall follow me every day of my life, twenty four hours at a time, as I surrender my will to thine, and to carry the message to others, and I will dwell in the house of my Higher Power, as I understand Him, daily, forever and ever, Amen.
