September Twenty-First ~ God's Daily Minute
“I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God.” – Deut. 30:16 ~
Our Heavenly Father, we come to Thee this morning with praise and thanksgiving for Thy care and love. We are grateful for the temporal blessings Thou hast given us, and for the loved ones we have to enjoy. We thank Thee for the gift of Thy Son, and for the Holy Spirit.
We ask Thee to forgive our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Be with us this day, and help us to be kind and courteous. Help us to be more like Thee. May our eyes be opened to the opportunities for serving Thee and helping others to know Thee, Whom to know aright is life eternal.
May Thy spirit be with those, at home or abroad, who preach or teach salvation, and grant that the word preached my not return unto Thee void. Be with those in authority and may they rule with justice and equity. Comfort “as one whom his mother comforteth” those in trouble and sorrow, and strengthen those in sickness.
Our Father, hear our petition, and keep us this day without sin, for the sake and in the name of Jesus, our Saviour. Amen
