A Minute for God: February 11th

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":

He is faithful that promised. -- Heb. 10: 23.

Our Heavenly Father, we thank Thee that Thy watchful care has brought us safely into another day with its obligations, labors, delights, and trials.  Give us strength to resist evil, and to cleave to that which is good.  Help us to let our light so shine that others may see our good works, and glorify Thee.  Be with those of us who go to work, and those of us who go to school, and those of us who take care of the home.  Bless with us all other families who remember Thee, and grant that in many homes who know Thee not, family altars may be erected, so that Thy Name may be glorified in the family life.  Bless the officers, members, workers, and enterprises of our Church, and of all churches that seek to enhance Thy Kingdom.  Thrust more laborers into the Kingdom, and through increased missionary efforts let the world  speedily be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord.  Bless our country and those who are directing its affairs.  Give them grace, wisdom, and courage to promote righteousness at home and in relations with other countries.  Bless all the other nations of the earth, with their statesmen and rulers.  May the spirit of fairness take possession of all of them, so that they will project into all international relationships, peace and harmony.  We ask these favors in the name of our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  Amen.
