Today I dress myself for life:

- Towards others,
I put on tender mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind,
meekness and longsuffering;
but above all these things,
I put on love which drives out fear.

- I let the peace of God rule in my heart
and I am thankful.

- As far as possible,
I set myself to live at peace with everyone.

- I let go of every prisoner in my heart,
and I put all cursing of people
out of my vocabulary.

- I apply the Word of God to my inner person,
to divide between my soul and my spirit,
and so that the Word of God
will cause me to be
as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove.

- I stir up the gift of God which is in me,
so that I cana serve the Lord with gladness.

- I bing the Strong Man assigned against me,
and I frustrate his plans
to thwart the purpose of God in my life today.

- I walk through every door of opportunity
which the Lord opens for me today,
because His presence goes with me,
and He guides me with His eye.

- I am strong and very courageous,
I meditate on God's Word,
I speak it forth out of my mouth,
and I obey His commands.

- By this,
I make my way prosperous
and I have good success today!
