God's Minute

June Twenty-ninth

His faith is counted for righteousness.--Romans 4:5

ALMIGHTY Father, Shepherd and Bishop of our souls, lift upon us the Light of Thy countenance. We thank Thee that it is possible for us to approach the unveiled mercy seat. We come not in our own name, nor do we plead any merit in ourselves. Our hope is in Christ, Thy beloved Son, crucified for us. He bore our sins in His own body on the tree, and by His stripes we are healed. Let Thy benediction rest upon this family circle. Help us to keep the fire of gratitude and devotion burning on Thy altar. Give us grace to overcome evil in the day of temptation. Give us courage in the hour of adversity, and humility in prosperity. Help us to live as in Thy sight; doing Thy will with alacrity and cheerfulness. Give wisdom and integrity of purpose, we pray Thee, to all those in authority over us, that in the administration of public affairs they may "do justice and love mercy." We invoke Thy special blessing upon the household under this roof, that we may not disappoint Thy gracious will concerning us. Bestow Thy heavenly grace upon father, mother, children, so that we may be worthy to have a place in the Great Family of God, which shall, by and by, enter upon their eternal inheritance. Thanks to Thee for victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen, and Amen.
