God's Minute


May 10
Faith which worketh by live.--Galatians 5:6

O THOU great and eternal God, Creator, Redeemer, and bountiful Benefactor--the one from Whom every good and perfect gift descends, we are assembled as a family to engage in worship of Thee. Breathe into our hearts the spirit of true devotion. Give to us repentance for our sins. Thou has taught us that there is but one thing that can come between our souls and Thee--one thing that can exclude us from the Kingdom of Grace and from the Kingdom of Glory; the one and only thing that Thou dost hate--sin. We rejoice that we may be delivered from sin; that we may have our fruit unto holiness, and in the end everlasting life. We are taught in Thy Holy Word that if we confess our sins, Thou art faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Give to us faith--faith in Jesus as our present, personal all-sufficient Saviour. Give to us hope--the hope that is an anchor to the soul, sure and steadfast, that enterest into that within the veil, and that will securely hold us in the midst of life's storms and trials. Give to us love--that perfect love that casteth out fear. O, give to us these and all other graces that the Holy Spirit imparts. We ask all in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Amen.
