God's Minute 2/24

February 24

Continue in prayer, and watch.--Colossians 4:2

O Father, God, we thank Thee today for life--the privilege of living. Help us today to remember that "we live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count the time by heart throbs." May we ever be reminded that "he lives best, who things best, feels the noblest, acts the best." Help us today to so act that we may show our appreciation for life by our work.

We thank Thee, too, O God, for the chance to serve. May we today overlook no opportunity to reach out a helping hand, to speak a kind word, to show sympathy; and above all, help us to appreciate every service rendered by those who work with and for us. May we, O Lord, in all that we do this day, do our level best; may we think the highest and best thoughts; may we strive to use our best efforts. Help us to strive today "not as thougth we had already attained, but that we might reach after" the spiritual life we long for. Then help us to "give to the world the best we have, that the best may come back to us." Hear us, O Father, in the Name of Thy dear Son, our Lord Jesus Christ!

Amen.
