Dr. Bob's story of the Alcoholics Anonymous Camel.
The AA camel, each day, goes twice to his knees to manage his load with the greatest of ease. He walks through the day with his head held high and stays for that day, completely dry.
Dr. Bob, physician and co-founder of AA would explain prayer by telling of how the camels in a caravan would kneel down in the evening, and the men would unload their burdens. In the morning, they would kneel down again, and the men would put the burdens back on. "It's the same with prayer," Dr. Bob said. "We get on our knees to unload at night. In the morning, when we get on our knees again, God gives us just the load we are able to carry for that day."
"The tasks of the day can pass with ease when a camel or I start on our knees. One Master we serve, the camel and I, and stay for that day completely dry." Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers (1980), page 229.
