God's Minute

August Sixth

And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?. . .He is risen.--Mark 16:2-3-6

For Sunday Morning

FOR the light of this Holy Sabbath Day, with its recurring privileges and blessings, our God, we thank Thee. For the gracious memories that it stirs within our hearts that on the first day of the week Christ Jesus arose from the dead, we give Thee praise. For the gracious hope that it revivies within our spirit that there remaineth a rest, keeping of the Sabbath, for the people of God, we would call upon our souls and all that is within us to praise and bless and magnify Thy Holy Name. We pray Thee that Thou wilt make straight paths for our feet this day, and help us to walk therein. Do Thou bless us in the worship of Thy house, and in the quiet meditation of our homes. Make this a day of rest and gladness to our hearts. Grant that it may be a great day in Thy Zion, a day marked by the ingathering of many precious souls out of darkness and into the marvelous light and liberty of the Gospel of Christ. And now unto Him Who is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory, with exceeding joy, to the only wise God, our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. (Jude 24,25)

Amen.
