God's Minute

June Twenty-third

Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling and to presentyou faultless before the presence of His glory.--Jude 24

ALMIGHTY and merciful God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, under the shadow of Thy wings have we rested through the night sheltered from danger and harm. And as the new day opens and privileges and opportunitites again arise to meet us, we pause to thank Thee and pay Thee homage. And we beseech Thee, be with us also through the day and guard us from harm and especially from falling into sin. We have been baptised into Thy name and have thus been adopted into Thy world-wide family of children. We have been bought with a price--the blood of our Redeemer. O keep us that we may not this day, nor ever, fall away from Thee and these covenant blessings, through sin. May no evil desire this day take possession of our heart, but may our every thought, word and deed be pleasing unto Thee. May Thy Holy Word continue to light our way and sustain us, and may its light fall upon those who sit in the darkness of unbelief, that Thy nbame may be hallowed also among them. Thy kingdom come and Thy will be done. Bless our home and all our dear ones. Bless our church, with missions, schools and charitable institutions. Be nigh especially to those who are sick, in distress, or in peril of death. Prosper all that is good among us and hinder every evil purpose and counsel. And at last, when life's journey is ended, may we inherit life eternal, through Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Amen.

Rev. O. J. H. Preus,
De Forest, Wisconsin
