You may feel that you have asked God for help in the past but did not get an immediate response back. After a night of drinking or drugging you may have cried out to God for help and received nothing, no answer – silence. You started to blame God for this silence and his lack of help and assistance in your needs. You became angry and started to pull away. It became easier to blame God than (as we discussed earlier) for you to own your choices and consequences. To not blame God would require the blame and responsibility for your addiction to be on you. So rather than feeling as if your prayers go unanswered, perhaps the silent response from God is an indication that you need to ask a new question.

When my sponsor first suggested that I pray about a problem or situation, and then turn it over to my Higher Power, I first thought, “Well that’s not going to work. I’ve got to..” When I tried it I found that it did work, and over the years I’ve discovered many other ways of handling things. Now when I’m struggling with a problem or situation, I stop trying so hard, and I’ve learned to try different. And it works (when I work it).
