God's Minute

July Second

Faithful is He that called you.--1 Thessalonians 5:24

O GOD, our hope is in Thee. We lift our eyes to the hills whence cometh our help. We are in the valley where there is darkness; but looking up we can see the light of Thy glory on the hill-tops above us, and the vision dispels our fears and fills us with hope and courage. Fill our hearts with a longing for Thee, greater than the longing of those who wait for the morning, and grant us that knowedge of Thyself, through Jesus Christ our Lord, that Thy presence may be constantly real to us.

Grant us strength for our tasks, and may we do all of our work as in Thy sight, and for Thy glory. Make the way of duty and service evey plain to us. Quicken us in faith and hope and love, and strengthen us in all our worthy purposes and desires, and make us a blessing to others.

Keep us from all mistakes or blunders in word or act that might bring reproach upon Thy Name and Thy cause. Make us quick to see every opportunity for service, and faithful to improve it. Cleanse us from all sin, perfect us in all goodness, give us victory in time of temptation, and make our lives to be beautiful with the beauty of God. All of which mercies and blessings we ask in the Name and for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
