God's Minute Palm Sunday

God is faithful by Whom you were called.--1 Corinthians 1:9

OUR FATHER, Who art in Heaven, Thou hast graciously answered our petition for safe keep-night. For these mercies we now thank Thee, Father, and lift our refreshed hearts and minds to Thee in thanksgiving, and in an appeal for guidance as we start out into the duties and privileges of a new and unknown day. Graciously cause Thy Holy Spirit to dwell in us richly, and to make real unto us a Father's omniscience, love and power. Help Thou us to realize what it really is to have the very hairs of our head all numbered. Show us anew the deep concern of the Good Shepherd as He feedeth His flock and nourisheth it for the Father's service. Cause Thy Kingdom to come, and Thy will to be done in and through us each moment of the day. Bring to our remembrance, O Spirit of God, such portions of the Divine Word as will give us the vision, the inspiration, and the faithfulness that will make us profitable--profitable to Thee by being helpful to those around us in real need of the knowledge of a Saviour's love and grace. These favors, together with the forgiveness of our own sins, we ask in the Name of Jesus--Thy Son and our Saviour.

Amen.
