God's Minute for March 18th

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 face, Lord, will I seek.--Ps. 27: 8.

Heavenly Father, before entering fully upon the duties of this new day, we would bow before Thee and join our hearts and our voices in prayer.  We pray Thee, that we may be truly conscious of Thy presence with us as we begin this day.
     Help us to know, in all the work of this day, that the still small voice that speaks within us and calls us to the best things, is the voice of God; that the power that tugs at our hearts is the hand of God; and that the light that falls upon our pathway, directing us in the right way, is the light and the love of our Father, God.  So may we walk this day with Thee, as Thy Holy Spirit guides us, and as we have been taught by Thy Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ the Righteous.
     We give Thee the love and gratitude of our hearts for all the blessings we enjoy.  Take each one of us now, dear Father, into Thy loving care as we go forth to the duties of this day.  May our lives be a benediction and blessing to all who need us.  Lead us ever, we pray Thee, in the way Thou wouldst have us to go, and when the journey is done, gather us all home at last; in the name of Jesus Christ.
