The sixth step prayer focuses on God’s help removing our defects of character and the ability to let go (and let God!). It can be very hard to let “things” from our past go. Dwelling on past defects for too long of time can be harmful to our sobriety. Use this prayer when asking God to remove your character defects.
God, help me become willing to let go of all the things to which I still cling. Help me to be ready to let you remove all of these defects, that your will and purpose may take their place. Amen.
