God's Minute

August Twenty-seventh

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.--Matthew 5:3-11

OUR Father, we adore Thee as the center of all pure spirits, and we pray Thee to make us like unto Thyself. May our minds think pure thoughts. May our hearts love pure things. May our very lives be pure because Thou art pure.

Cleanse us and sanctify us , and constatly save us, our Father, lest we should break down under the wear and tear of the world and fall beneath temptations that without Thy purity and strength we culd never resist. In Jesus' Name.

Amen.
