God's Minute

September Thirteenth

Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Love never faileth.--1 Corinthians 13:1-7

MOST merciful God, Whose we are and from Whom we receive our daily supplies, accept the adoration and gratitude of our hearts for Thy fatherly care and bounty. We have sinned and come short of Thy glory. Be merciful unto us in the forgiveness of all our sins, for the sake of Him Who loved us and gave Himself for us. May the love of Christ abound in our hearts, and manifest itself in our daily lives. May the Holy Spirit enlighten our minds, and enable us to understand and appropriate the Word of God, in order that it may be food for our souls and light unto our pathway. May He comfort our hearts and help us to lay down every burden that hinders our Christian progress. Deliver us from the power and temptations of Satan and wicked people. Employ our lives every day in Thy service, and make them a blessing to others. In mercy deal with the afflicted and save the lost, for Jesus' sake.
