God's Minute 2/23

February 23

He that hath My commandments and keepeth them, loveth me.--John 14:21

MOST gracious God Almighty, all wise, all loving, our Heavenly Father, we rejoice that Thou hast called us to be Thy children.

We confess before Thee, that we are indeed like little children, with all their weakness and imperfections, but without their humility, purity, teachableness and trustfulness. Cleanse us from our sins. Grant us joy and peace in believing in Thee. May we have the love that believeth all things, hopeth all things, and endureth all things.

In our home, in our daily work and recreations, and in all our relations to others, make us strong and steadfast to do the right and shun the wrong. Bless us, that we may become a blessing to others.

Remember, we beseech Thee, all clases and conditions of men--the sick, the sorrowful, the poor and needy, the widows and orphans, the little children with their sweet faith and childlike joys, the young and vigorous, bearing the responsibilities of life.

Bless the missionaries at home and abroad. Be pleased to make Thyself known in the labors of the faithful pastors and teachers, and let Thy truth and righteousness govern the nations of the earth, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

Rufus W. Miller, D.D.,
