My lips shall utter praise.--Psalm 199:171
OUR Heavenly Father, help us to be thankful for our home with all its blessings and privileges. Give each of us eyes to see, and grace and strength for the duties and privileges that are ours. Help us to be home-lovers and home-makers. Grant that we may bless every home-coming within the radius of our influence.
Give us the eye of pity and the hand of help for all whose needs have claim upon us. Save us from "the snare of the fowler" and from pestilence, that we may in purity and strength serve Thee.
Bless our church--Thy Church--O, our God, and him who ministers to us in spiritual things, and Thy servants the world over. May our religion be real and satisfying to us, and appetizing to others. Let our love to Thee be voiced in our efforts, gifts, and prayers, in behalf of a lost world.
Help us to live in constant readiness for whatever Thy providence hath in store for us, and to say ever in word, thought and deed, "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven."
