God's Minute

May 12

Thou Lord hast not forsaken them that seek Thee.--Psalm 9:10

O, GOD, Our Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for all the gracious gifts Thy love bestows. In whatsoever ill we suffer, teach us submission to Thy Holy Will. Forgive us our transgressions for His sake, Who is the propitiation for our sins. With hearts softened by Thy boundless mercy, may we forgive all who have offended us.

For every one whom we should remember before Thy Throne of Grace, we beg the special blessings needed. Advance the interests of Thy Kingdom throughout the world. By Thy Holy Spirit prompt and enable us to be workers together with Thee for the salvation of all men. Make those in authority over us to be capable and honest; and may we honor them as ruling by Thy ordinance. Pity all who are in adversity. May Christ so dwell in our heartst hat we shall seek to minister, rather than to be ministered unto.

For our tasks make us sufficient, and for our burdens, strong; and when Thou art ready for us, call us home, O Father, to the joy of Thy eternal presence.

All these things we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Amen.

Bishop Lewis W. Burton, D.D.,
Lexington, Kentucky
