6. Release
Inspired by Psalms 5 and 6

My eye wastes away with grief.
I cannot bear your rebuke, my love.
Be gracious to me for I am withering,
Heal me, for my very bones are troubled.

O Spirit of Life in heaven and earth,
You delight not in wrongdoing.
Evil may not sojourn with you.
With abundant love would I enter your house.

Then softly, in my suffering silence,
I hear you speak the words I long to hear,
‘Welcome back, husband, father, lover,
To the land of the living, to love and light.’

​AA Step 6—We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
