Cyberbrethren New Year's Resolution

From Pastor Paul McCain at Cyberbrethren ~

Greetings Cyberbrethren:

My friend, Pastor William Weedon, posted a very useful New Year's
resolution. I'm going to join him, with God's help. Will you join me?

1. Read the daily Scripture readings assigned in LSB for morning and
evening (pp. 299-304).
2. Pray the daily Psalms assigned in the Psalter Chart (p. 304).
3. Read the assigned section of the Book of Concord for Monday-Friday
for each of the 52 weeks of the year

(Concordia: The Lutheran Confessions - note: they are presented in
chronological order of their writing)

I offer this as a suggestion because I think it would be utterly
achievable for anyone - even the busiest. The easiest way to
accomplish the above would be to pray Matins and Vespers daily (using
the assigned Psalms and Scripture readings) and to read sometime
during the course of the day (maybe before, at, or after lunch?) the
page or two assigned from the Book of Concord. What strength would
come to us from such an immersion in the psalter, such a reading
through the Word, and such a review of the Church's Symbols!

Anyone willing to take up the challenge?
