If I had money to spend on anything I wanted, I’d take one of those holidays at a “fat farm” where there’s healthy food, exercise classes and hot spa/relaxation with detox treatments! But, just as modern medicine has found that stress relief and well-being stems from laughter and joy, today’s chapter holds a unique detox formula that few people may have thought of.

Paul, a 1st century Jewish teacher recommends that we “rejoice in the Lord always”. [v4] And, apart from gentleness [v5] and eradicating anxiety with simple prayer [v6] so that the peace of God can guard our hearts and minds [v7], Paul gives us an amazing detox formula that uniquely purifies our whole being from the top down:

“…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.” [v8]

All I need for “wellness”, and to detox from the negatives of “Life on Planet Earth” today, is in my “Maker’s Handbook”…

Finding it hard to talk directly to your Creator God? The rest of this webpage uses Jesus’ own prayer to help…[a]


   1.   Praise: “Our Father in Heaven, how great is Your name! Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…”

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, ‘The Lord reigns!’ [1 Chronicles 16:31]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

  • The World: Pray for God’s will for Slovenia[b]
  • Your Nation: Your country’s response to needs in Asia
  • Yourself: Opportunities for personal evangelism
  • Your concerns for today
Thank-you Lord, that You are the God who hears my prayer and plea that I’m making before You today. [1 Kings 9:3]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Jesus said: “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” [Matthew 26:28]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one…”

Rescue me, O Lord, from ruthless people. Preserve me from violence of men. [Psalm 140:1]

“ For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory for ever and ever. Amen”
