Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Fourth Step Prayer
Dear God, It is I who has made my life a mess. I have done it, but I cannot undo it. My mistakes are mine and I will begin a searching and fearless moral inventory. I will write down my wrongs But I will also include that which is good. I pray for the strength to complete the task.
Attached is a Word document. You can download it and type your answers right on the document. We also have a sample fourth step from one of our members . . .
The fried of mine asked to post her Life Story to the step one (I was need to translate it).
"Step 4 of LAA.
I took Step 4 in a small group of LAA with some fellow travelers. We wrote it for a very long time, describing the shortcomings of the character in detail. At first, the word "lack of" had sounded like an insult to me. But I understand it now as "The something that had been missing". For example, our wrongs: "You become very addicted when it comes to relationships." It means for me that I have a shortage of self-reliance, the strength for self-sufficiency. The Fourth Step allowed me to see the reasons why I was dependent of such a destructive relationship. My fellow travelers and I analyzed all our vulnerabilities, character defects, strengths and realized that we are not alone and are very similar to each other. This fact gave me strength, I felt understood and accepted. When I understood myself better, I found answers to questions, and for the first time I realized what humility does mean. I began the process of accepting myself inside. I allowed myself to make mistakes and did not destroy myself for that. I began to feel myself more complete, whole, and soft." Written by "S".
