God's Minute: May 5th

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":

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.  For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward: How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him. -- Hebrews 2:1-3.

Our Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for all the gifts that come from Thy liberal hand; for life, health, and friends, and home.  We thank Thee for Thy protection and care while we slept; and for the new morning with its call to work; for the food and raiment so freely provided, and for the shelter and peace of this house.  Guide and direct us this day in all we do, that we may do Thy will in all our relationships with other people.  Help us to be patient, faithful, considerate, and kind, and may we not be drawn into temptation and sin.  Be with all our absent dear ones, and may their lives and health be precious in Thy sight.  May Thy Kingdom come in all the earth, so that all men may be brothers.  We ask in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.
