Prayer

My sponsor said, “Pray if you can.” Having no faith whatever,
thinking that prayer must be a kind of autohypnotic play-acting,
alone in my apartment I got down on my knees like a little child
and prayed to the unknown God.

I said, “God, take away my compulsion to drink.” And my compulsion to drink was removed, and it has not returned from that day to this.
Without knowing how I had done it, I had surrendered to the Power,
and the Power did for me what I could not do of my own will
