“‘If you have a resentment you want to be free of, if you will pray for the person or thing that you resent, you will be free. If you will ask in prayer for everything you want for yourself to be given to them, you will be free.” – (Big Book, Page 552)
If resentment is the number one offender then what happens when we have a resentment that we have trouble letting go of? We are told to pray for the person or thing we resent. When praying for this resentment, we are giving this resentment to our Higher Power. We are letting God do what we could not do for ourselves.
Today I will pray for a person or thing I resent. Today I will remember that I’m not alone in this journey and that my Higher Power will always help me when I’m willing to put in some action.
