"Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings."


 

When ready, we say something like this:

" My Creator,

I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and bad.

I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character

which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows.

Grant me strength, as I go out from here, to do your bidding."


Having said this, the 7th step is completed. On to step 8 and more action.
