An end to 'My Year of Drinking Dangerously'

The desire to stop drinking is a prayer.

From the April 2001 issue of The Christian Science Journal

If God knows our heart , why isn't repentance and a desire to be pure sufficient to make us pure? Because effective repentance means reform—radical, fundamental rethinking that changes sorrow, shame, and suffering into purified lives. God's love for us impels us toward this reformation process.
