God's Minute

August Seventeenth

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.--Psalm 84:11

LORD, we thank Thee for the blessings of the day that is gone. We were guarded and guided at every step, and not a single good thing was withheld from us. We pray Thy forgiving mercy as we begin the duties and face the dangers of this new day. Cleanse us in Thy blood; comfort us with Thy presence; strengthen us with Thy power, and help us like little children to put our hand in Thine and be led by Thee all the day through.

Deepen the gratitude of our hearts, and help us to lean upon Thy bosom as John leaned upon the bosom of His Lord.

May we be busy today that we may be blessed of Thee, and become a blessing to others. We pray for all the world, evey man and woman, but especially for those near and dear to us by the ties of nature. Bless our family, and make it so happy and pure, that the angels, our guardian spirits, may find within its walls and atmosphere akin to that of heaven.

Amen.

Rev. M. M. Davis,
Dallas, Texas
