God's Minute: September 25th

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":

Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.  Blessed art Thou, O Lord: teach my Thy statutes.--Ps. 119:11-12.

    Dear Father in Heaven, we come to Thee in love and praise for all the blessings we enjoy; for the food we have to eat, for the water we drink, the raiment we wear and the fresh air we breathe.  We thank Thee for our home, our loved ones, and that we live in a land and an age when we can worship Thee openly.  We thank Thee for the open Bible, but above all else we thank Thee that Thou didst lead us out of darkness into light through the gift of Thy dear Son.
    O Father, help us to become more worthy Thy watchful care and love.  Keep us in the straight and narrow path.  Bless us in our plans and purposes, but defeat us in them if they lead us from Thee.  Help us to let our light shine, and give us souls for our hire, in the name of Jesus we ask it.  Amen.

Rev. John L. Brandt,
St. Louis, Missouri.
