God's Minute

July Thirteenth

Nay, in all these thing we are more than conquerors throught Him that loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.--Romans 8:37-39

ALMIGHTY GOD, our Heavenly Father, in Whom we live and move and have our being, we render Thee our humble praises for Thy preservation of us from the beginning of our lives to this day; for Thy many mercies we bless and magnify Thy glorious Name. And since it is of Thy mercy, O gracious Father, that another day is added to our lives, we here dedicate both our souls and our bodies to Thee and Thy service.

We would remember before Thy throne of Grace all those who are near and dear to us, and all for whom we are bound to pray.

Be merciful to all who are in any trouble, aned be graciously pleased to take us and all things belonging to us under Thy Fatherly care and protection this day, and forevermore.

We ask it for Christ's Sake,

Amen.

Bishop Ethelbert Talbot,
South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

A Bishop Among His Flock was written by Bishop Talbot for the instruction and edification of his own people. This is available online at the above link.
From the introduction: "While many books have been written covering in the main the same ground and what has been said in the following pages has often been said more felicitously, yet the author feels abundantly justified in supplying his own people, as coming from himself as their bishop, with what he feels every well-equipped churchman should possess. Moreover, he is persuaded that the great difficulty in this busy age in which we live is to induce people to read religious books at all, and he trusts that these thoughts may appeal to many because of the personal relation existing between themselves and their chief pastor He offers no apology, therefore, in trying to meet, however inadequately, what he knows to be a widely felt need of those committed to his spiritual care and jurisdiction."
