Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
Praise the Lord.

I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
For a man’s ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all his paths.
But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.”
To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, & your plans will succeed.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
As long as it is day, we must do the work of Him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
