God's Minute

June Twenty-seventh

I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.--Acts 27:25

THE night has brought us rest and refreshment and renewal of strength and hope, Father. The day opens to us its opportunities, and brings us its manifold tasks and, it may be, its trials and burdens and cares.

We thank Thee, our Father for the restoration of power and courage, while we have slept. We trustingly pray for guidance and enabling for the undertakings and employments of the day.

We seek the direction which shall set us forward along right ways, the wisdom which shall cause us rightly to choose in every issue, the integrity which shall keep us wholly loyal to the truth.

May no burden be laid upon us beyond our strength, and if the trials of the day are to be many, grant unto us great patience, constant self-control, and the power to keep our tempers and our judgment.

Grant that we may suffer not loss of faith in our fellowmen, no lessening in our belief of purity and goodness, no dimming of our vision of the ideal. And bring us at the end of a day of useful labor and helpful living to the joy of an unbroken home.

Amen.

Rev. J. Percival Huget,
Detroit, Michigan
