Exactly.
I have leanred to pray for acceptance instead of change.

How many times I have had those mind arguements!! Lovely example of insanity, just like being afraid of loosing something I do not have. The "tool" of prayer works everytime. And Rule 62 seems to be the cement to hold things in place.

I see the absurdity of my mind arguments now. I used to concoct scenarios. What a waste of time and brain cells.

I am grateful that since coming into AA, I have been blessed with people and resources that share what used to happen to me..and I would drink because of this imaginary verbal combat. Because in my mind (combat zone) it would be real. Real or imagined...it was a reason to pick up a drink. I thank God that now I know what this is...alcoholism.

Yes, how much of my life I wasted in imaginary conflict. :(

Thank you Mr SP.

Ah, yes, and don't we always have the most slicingly brilliant repartee in these internal dialogue arguments? None of the more realistic middle-aged blank moments in which we search fruitlessly for a word, or when our imagination fails us completely, use the slightly more adult version of "Up your nose!"

I have often heard, the only prayer you will ever need is "thank you". Also ran across this quote recently:
"The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays."
— Søren Kierkegaard
