'Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will' (Romans 12:2, NIV). My Prayer Lord, help us to remember that we are to conform only to the image of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Keep us from being pressed into the mold of the world's expectations, so that we may become Your holy vessels. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
