God's Minute 2/27

The Lord looseth the prisoners; The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind; The Lord raiseth them that are bowed down; The Lord loveth the righteous: The Lord preserveth the strangers; He relieveth the fatherless and widow; but the way of the wicked He turneth upside down. The Lord shall reign for ever, even thy God. O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord.--Psalm 146:7-10

OH GOD, our Father! How precious to us is the privilege of having Thy Name linger on our lips, giving us new assurance of the fact that we are in the circle of Thy love and care. May this confidence drive away all fear and anxiety, and help to keep out of this day all other enemies of our souls. In the moment of our temptation, may we realize Thy promise and Thy presence. When burdens become heavy, may we find the strength necessary in Thee. In face of all difficulty and every problem, may we be brave because of our faith. For whatever these hours bring, may Thy grace be sufficient.Whatever we do, may we do it all to Thy glory. May this day bear the divine mark in the calendar on earth, and in Heaven.

We leave our prayers where all prayer belongs--in the shadow of the Cross.

Amen.
