God's Minute

September Seventeenth

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.--Psalm 103:1-5

ALMIGHTY GOD, Father of all grace, we adore Thee as The Author of our being, our Preserver, and our Redeemer. Cleanse us from all inherent iniquity, and from all the defilements of sin contracted as we have lived and moved in a sinful world. Command a double portion of ThySpirit's power upon Thy ministers, upon all Christian workers, and upon all Thy people who constitue Thy Kingdom upon earth. Grant that Thy children may show that spirit of kindness and helpfulness which was manifested by our Lord Jesus Christ when upon earth. Work in us the spirit of forgiveness towards all who may have in any way offended against us. Give us that which is necessary for the health of our bodies and endue us with the spirit of contentment. Give us a just conception of the things with which we are surrounded, and make us faithful in the discharge of all our duties.

We ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
