God's Minute

August Sixteenth

This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.--John 5:4

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Jehovah, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who art worthy of the praises of all the children of men, be pleased to hear our prayers this day. Holy art Thou, and may all Thy creatures worship and adore Thee. May we who dwell in this house truly fear and love and trust in Thee about all things. We bless Thee for all Thy goodness and tender mercies, especially for the gift of Thy dear Son and for the Bible, the revelation of Thy will and grace.

Our lives, though unworthy, have been precious in Thy sight. Thou has provided for our bodies every needed blessing. Thou dost feed our souls upon the Bread of Life so long as we humbly seek salvation through Jesus the Messiah. Continue Thy blessings to us.

Overshadow us with Thy mercy. Empty us of all pride. Forgive our sins. Implant Thy Word in us that we may bring forth fruit by patient continuance in well doing.

Graciously deliver us from sickness, fire, want and trouble. Help us to lay to heart Thy Fatherly chastenings that we may judge ourselves and amend our ways. These and all needed benefits we ask only through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord.


Rev. H. F. Obenauf,
