God, give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed.
Courage to change the things which should be changed, and the Wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.
Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time, Accepting
hardship as a pathway to peace, Taking, as Jesus did, This sinful world as it
is, Not as I would have it, Trusting that You will make all things right, If I
surrender to Your will, So that I may be reasonably happy in this life, And
supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.

Again, we are in danger of disobeying the plain commands of God's word in allowing prayer ever to take the place of anything in our power to do, and that we are commanded to do as a means to secure needed good. He who has said "pray always," has also said, "Be ambitious to be quiet and to do your own business, and to work with your hands, even as we charged you; that you may walk honestly toward them that are without, and may have need of nothing."

It is a rule of love, of truth, a rule of service.
"Whosoever shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven."
And you will be given a very great welcome into the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, a kingdom that never ends.
2 Peter 1:11

There is a world with its perishing millions,
with intercession as its only hope. How much of love and work is comparatively
vain, because there is so little intercession. Millions living as if there
never had been a Son of God to die for them, passing into the outer darkness

Christ is our example
God took His own Son, and made Him our example and our pattern. It sometimes is as if the power of Christ’s example is lost in the thought that He, in whom is no sin, is not man as we are. Our Lord took Paul, a man of like passions with ourselves, and made him a pattern of what he could do for one who was the chief of sinners.

God hear me
Lovely child of God, you know by experience how little dread and worry of the truth has helped you. Beg God to reveal Himself to you through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
If you want to live a different prayer-life, bow when you pray. Find a quiet place and pray in silence to worship God; to wait until He rests on you some right sense of His nearness and readiness to answer. Begin your prayer with the words, “My God will hear me!”

Intercession is the act of prayer to God on behalf of others.

The Centers for Disease Control says nearly half of all Americans suffer from chronic obesity. Dr. Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel G. Amen and Dr. Mark Hyman wrote the life-changing weight-loss book The Daniel Plan.
The Daniel Plan entertains five main emphases: faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends. This plan addresses the person as a whole.
The Daniel Plan is a book about adopting a lifestyle centering on the fact that our bodies were created by God as a temple of worship to Him. The Daniel Plan is a well-rounded philosophy of eating and spiritual health.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20You should know that your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit that you received from God and that lives in you. You don’t own yourselves. God paid a very high price to make you his. So honor God with your body.

The book of Proverbs
The book of Proverbs is God's wisdom for a blueprint for a happy life. They are an example of wisdom, moral behavior and the meaning of life. These are the proverbs of Solomon, the son of David and king of Israel.
