God's Minute

August Fourteenth

Here are thy that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.--Revelation 14:2

O GOD, our Heavenly Father, Thou hast been good and gracious to us. In the morning Thou gavest us a day, each minute to be used in service to Thee and to humanity. Help us to use each of these minutes, O Lord, to Thy name's honor and glory and to the advancement of Thy cause and kingdom. At the close of the day may we return all of the hours just as sacred and holy as they were when given to us at early dawn.

We thank Thee for Thy love and protection. Thy gracious love is so boundless and unlimited that it has overshadowed us and sheltered us from all harm and danger. Thy heart of love includes us in its beatings, and so we are grateful to Thee.

Thou art our Friend, O Jehovah of hosts. Thou hast been with us through thick and thin. When other supposed friends were deserting us, Thou didst abide with us as a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother. We seem to hear Thee speaking to us now. Yes, Thou art so very near and Thou wilt surely keep and protect us through the night. Accept these our petitions this hour, we pray, in Jesus' name.

Amen.

Rev. G. Frank Burns,
