The Seventh Step of Alcoholics Anonymous states: “Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.” I have noticed this step is often passed over quickly by many who are working the steps for their first time (myself included).
As time passed on in my recovery, and I progressed, I found this to be an extremely important step that I absolutely do not take lightly. Step Seven works hand-in-hand with the 10th Step.
When I constructively review my behaviors and resentments I always strive to find what defect of character is the driving force. Whether it be ego, fear, pride, or any other defect, I consistently find that my poor behavior and resentments center around flaws in my character.
If I stopped here at recognizing my defects, nothing would get solved. I know I must actively work on letting my character attributes take place of my defects if I am to progress. The simplest way for me to do this is to get the list of my character defects from my daily inventory, and to literally sit down and say a prayer that each individual one be removed. Sometimes my list is longer than others, but I take the time to sit down and go over each one.
My prayer usually goes along the lines of, “Please take away my pride, so that it may increase my usefulness to others…if it is your will.” Simple, quick, and meaningful, I do this every night, and often throughout the day. The Sixth Step of Alcoholics Anonymous declares that we must be willing to have our defects removed. Through my prayer, and doing my best to steer clear of acting on my defects, I practice willingness every day.
