Step 1. Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
(What do I request today of God?)
Step 2. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
(What is my focus today? What is good?)
Step 3. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you.
(Who shall I imitate today? Note: See note in Phil. 3:17: “Being imitators of me: not arrogance, but humble simplicity, since all his converts know that Paul is wholly dedicated to imitating Christ”)
