God's Minute: August 15th

Here's today's scripture reference and prayer from "God's Minute", a book published in 1916 that contains 365 daily prayers sixty seconds long for home worship "by the most eminent preachers and laymen in the English speaking world":

Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.--Phil. 2: 4-6.

     O God, we come to Thee because Thou art in Thyself all that we desire to become in ourselves.  We are weak, but Thou art strong; we come seeking Thy strength.  We are sinful but Thou art holy, and we come seeking Thy holiness.  We are ignorant but Thou art wise, and we come seeking Thy wisdom. 
     Bless us, that we may be in our characters that Thou art in Thine, pure and holy.  Aid us, that we may be in our hearts what Thou art in Thine, good and righteous.  Help us, that we may in our lives be what Thou art in Thine, kind and generous.  All that Thou art, we pray that thus we may become, so that we can think Thy thoughts after Thee, walk in the steps of the One Who went about doing good, and so live that our wills may be brought into harmony with Thy divine purpose, and our lives conformed to Thy eternal righteousness.  Amen.

W.W. Bustard, D.D.,
