God's Minute 3/5

God forbid that I should sin in ceasing to pray.--1 Samuel 12:23

FATHER in Heaven, we turn to Thee in the morning of this new day, in loving gratitude for Thy care over us through the past night. We thank Thee today for home and food and clothing, for service to which Thou hast called us, and for a measure of health and strength to serve Thee, for friends to love and serve, and above all, for the revelation of Thyself through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

We pray Thee to bless our home today; guard every one of us in the hour of temptation; keep our feet from the paths of sin; keep us from using selfishly any of the blessings that Thou hast bestowed upon us. Fill our lives with the joy and peace and satisfaction that comes from living in obedience to Thee.

Cleanse and purify Thy Church, and strengthen it for the service for which Thou hast redeemed it, empowering all those who preach and teach Thy blessed Word in our land and in distant lands. Fill Thy Church with a passion to finish the task Thou hast given it to do.

Grant to every one we love Thy richest and fullest blessing for this day. We pray in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Amen.
