Today I dress myself for life:

Having prepared myself adequately,

I am now ready
to enter the gates of my God and King
with thanks-giving in my heart.

I enter the courts of His palace
with praise on my lips.

I seek after dwelling in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze constantly
on the beauty of the Lord,
and to enquire in His temple.

I settle myself in the secure place
of the Most High God,
because I am under the protection of the Almighty.

I sing aloud upon my bed
and I tread upon the serpents and scorpions
in my path today.

This is my privilege
as a saint of the Lord of the Armies of heaven,
and I have my heavenly Father's assurance that
nothing shall by any means hurt me.

I receive the word that my Father has sent
to heal me,
as I serve the Lord my God,
He will bless my food and drink
and take sickness out of me,
because His Word is life to me
and health to my body.
