March 21 – Noon


Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

(Philippians 3:13-14)


Dear God,

You are the source of all strength and guidance in my life. I thank You for the inspiration and encouragement found in this verse, reminding me to forget what is behind and strain toward what is ahead. Help me to let go of the past, whether it be regrets, mistakes, or missed opportunities, and to focus on the present and future with confidence and hope. Give me the wisdom to discern Your will for my life, and the courage to pursue it with determination and perseverance.

As I press on toward the goal You have set before me, I pray for Your guidance and strength. Keep me focused on Your purpose for my life, and help me to see the progress and growth You have planned for me. When I feel discouraged or overwhelmed, remind me of Your promise that through You, all things are possible. I trust in Your unfailing love and power to see me through every challenge and to lead me to the fulfillment of Your plans for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
