This book is so much more than a daily devotional! Each week ends with a series of questions to ponder, and the back of the book includes information on forming and leading a Serenity Group. Included is also a "Group Journey Guide" as well as a "Personal Journey Guide."
The author has truly gone above and beyond with this book. He seems truly committed to helping people in their recovery journeys as is evidenced by this book, and all of the free resources he has on his website. ([...]) He has also been working with alcoholics completing their 5th steps for almost 30 years, according to the back cover. I wholeheartedly encourage anybody in recovery to purchase this book. It will not disappoint! You may even consider creating your own Serenity Group, as the author has suggested. I certainly hope to do so at some point.
I also like the included workbooks that are almost hidden in the book, because it looks like a beautiful coffee table devotional book, not a typical workbook.
First, in subtle workbook applications, the reader first learns how to pray the Serenity Prayer better (not just as a memorized prayer), and then is led to it pray longer to get help with specific problems and weaknesses. Each page has room so the reader can write their own addition to the Serenity Prayer. All the daily prayers in the book are short so you can complete the prayer in your own words. The author suggests that you use the space in the book to write down your prayer requests and then your answers to prayer.
Second, as a workbook, the seventh day of each week includes study questions that the reader can answer to review and apply what they have learned about the step they studied that week.
Third, the group study questions in the back of the book can be used by any prayer group, recovery group, or Sunday school class that wants to study the Serenity Prayer, Prayer, or the Twelve Steps. The book does not require a leader to do very much advance preparation. Just answer the questions!
I highly recommend this book!
I went to the book's website and asked the author a question. He answered it, and decided to start a whole new 12 Step series of additional FREE 7th Day Readings to use with the 7th Day questions in his book. He told me that when we start our group we can print out the readings and read them for discussion or give them to those who attend! My question was on The Third Step, and he already has his answer on his website at PrayerSteps.org!
"Prayer Steps" is so powerful, it helped me tie my belief in God and Christianity to the Twelve Steps in a way that changed my life. Using this Twelve Step Journey along with my Faith, I have managed to return to sanity and keep my family and friends.
