God's Minute

August Twenty-second

I called upon the Lord in distress; the Lord answered me.

OUR Father, Who art in Heaven, we thank Thee that Thou art our Father, that we are not orphans, but sons and daughters of the Lord God Almighty! Hallowed be Thy Name. May it be the work of our lives to render holiness to the Name of the Lord in all the earth. Thy Kingdom come in the plentitude of its power and the fulness of its blessing, and be spread abroad upon the face of the earth until the kingdoms of the world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ.

Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. We know that it is done gladly, joyfully, and cheerfully by Thy creatures in Heaven, and may it be so done by Thy children on earth. Give us from day to day our daily bread, and teach us that, having food and raiment, therewith to be content, for godliness with contentment is great gain.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the Evil One with all his power and perils, and Thine shall be the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever, through Jesus Christ, our Saviour.

Amen.

Rev. Z. T. Sweeney,
Colombus, Indiana
