God's Minute: June 30th

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":

Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.--1 Tim. 3: 9.

     We extol Thee, O Lord, our King, as we present ourselves before Thee, through the merits of Jesus Christ, Who by His cross and precious blood, hath redeemed us from our sin.  We humbly beseech Thee, O merciful Father, to pardon our offenses against Thee and Thy Holy Law; to create within us a clean heart and a right spirit; to cause the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts to be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, our Rock and our Redeemer.  We bless Thy Holy Name, our Father, for Thy manifold and unceasing goodness unto us.  We owe to Thee the temporal blessings of our lives, and all the opportunities we have for usefulness and happiness.  Enable us, by Thy Holy Spirit, that we may enjoy and use these, and all Thy good gifts in a worthy and acceptable manner.  Be compassionate, O God, toward all the suffering, sorrowing, and sinning ones.  Be the comforter of the aged, the guide of the young, the wisdom of all who teach, the ruler of all who govern, the light of all who are in darkness -- the Saviour of all mankind.  Hasten, O Lord, Thy glorious appearing, and number us among those who shall receive at Thy right hand the crown of glory that fadeth not away.  Through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
