O God, today I begin an experiment in seeking peace. You have so much to say about peace in the Bible that I know it is Your will for all of us to be at peace.

Knowing that O God, I am encouraged to press through all opposition, so that Your will might be fulfilled in me this year.

Help me, I pray, to stop excusing my attitudes and actions, for I know I alone am responsible for what I do today. Help me live in the NOW and not to borrow from the future or get stuck in the past.

Help me to forget the errors of yesterday while I live to the fullest today, to Your glory. Help me not to be anxious about tomorrow but to be assured that by living today within Your will, tomorrow shall be even better than today.

I do now commit myself to You Lord, trusting You for the needs of today. In the precious name of Jesus, I ask all these things. Amen
