God's Minute

August Thirteenth

And they continued steadfastly. . .in prayer.--Acts 2:42

GRACIOUS Lord, we bring Thee anew this day the praise of our lips and the worship of our hearts. Be bless Thee for the care of our bodies, for the guarding of our minds, and for the delight of our awakened spirits in Thyself. We confess we have not merited even the least of Thy mercies, and yet our lives are crowned each day with unnumbered tokens of Thine infinite love. Wilt Thou beget within us a new humility, a deepened sense of our dependence, and a fuller surrender to Thy will.

Give us the peace with springs from a constant sense of Christ's infinite sacrifice; give us the sanctity of a life which is the fruit of His indwelling; give us the pwer through Thy Holy Spirit to serve and honor Thee.

Help us to walk in a spirit of constant prayer, to increasingly delight in Thy Holy Word, to love one another, and to have some part in bringing the light of the Gospel to those in darkness. In the midst of the confusion and stress of earth, may our souls rest in Thine own perfect calm, and may we be able to comfort those in trouble with the comfort wherewith we are comforted of God. We ask all in Jesus' name.

Amen.
