STEP SEVEN Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

Step Seven is about humility (realistic, selfless, and modest) and asking for help to make the changes you are now prepared for.  Consider Step Seven as a portal into openness for change.  Once you take Step Seven, you step out of the way so your Higher Power can handle the rest of it.  The combination of humility and asking provides a survivor with a perspective beyond the traumatic events.  Sadly, you can form an inaccurate perspective based on how you internalized the traumatic event(s).  Through prayer (humbly asking), you can trust that your prayers are heard, shall be answered in God’s time only.
