God's Minute

September Thirtieth

Unto Thee life I up mine eyes, O Thou that dwellest in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that He have mercy upon us.--Psalm 123:1-3

OUR Heavenly Father, in the light of another day we rise to do Thy will. We bless Thee for the comfort and rest of the night, and the promise of strength for the new day.

May we find joy in our toil, and much quiet in the clamor and strife of the street. May the still, small voice guide us in the way of all good, and may Thine own spirit throughout this day keep our eyes from tears, our feet from falling, and our souls from death.

Bless all our kind, and those everywhere that we hold dear, and do for them, we beseech Thee, beyond what we know how to ask. Forgive every wrong thing in our lives for which we repent. Keep us this day near to Thee in all our thoughts and words and deeds. Let Thy joy live in our hearts, and Thy peace abide in our homes, and all these things we ask in Jesus' name.
