God's Minute

September Seventh

Hast Thou not known? hast though not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth fainteth not, neither is weary?--Isaiah 40:28

OUR Heavenly Father, with reverence and humilitiy we would bow at the Throne of Grace to obtain mercy and find grace for our daily needs. Conscious in some measure of our weakness and sinfulness, we earnestly seek Thy forgiving mercy, rejoicing to know that "Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him." We thank Thee for our home, and for the love that sweetens and beautifies home life. To each member of our family circle grant such blessings as are specially needed. Enlarge and deepen our sympathies. Preserve us from selfishness. Help us to learn patience and self control. Keep us from hasty, thoughtless and unkind words, and from misunderstaning and misjudging others, and deliver us from anxiety and complaining. Fill Thy Church with missionary zeal and with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Strengthen the weak, comfort the sorrowing, restore the wandering. Remember with special mercy the homeless, the widow and the fatherless and all who are lonely and friendless. Help men everywhere to have the spirit of true brotherhood, and grant the speedy triumph throught the whole world of the principles of the Gospel of Peace. All of which we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Amen.
