God's Minute: March 14th

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":

Ask and it shall be given you. ~ Luke 11:9.

     Our Heavenly Father, accept our thanks for the re-creation of body and mind Thou hast given us in the hours of wonderful sleep.
     Help us to be so attentive to the still small voice of our Teacher and Guide, the Holy Spirit, that whether we eat or drink, or whatever we do this day, all shall be done to Thy glory.
     We desire that Thy Kingdom come and Thy will be done in our hearts, our home, our city, our country, and in all the earth.  We so desire this, that here and now we offer Thee our bodies, our minds, our reputations, our characters and our lives, and ask Thee to use each and all as seems best to Thee.
     So relate us and all we have to Thy work in the world, that we may count for most in Thy Kingdom.  So teach and train us by Thy Word and daily providences that we shall trust Thee daily for our daily needs, and witness for Thee by being as peaceful and joyous in disappointment, adversity, or affliction, as in prosperity.
     We ask it in the name of Jesus, our Saviour.  AMEN.
