"My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and bad. I pray you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows. Grant me strength, as I go out from here, to do your bidding. Amen."


Big Book pg. 76


Great Spirit help me not to judge, you made us complete, good and bad.
