God's Minute

November 1

Now abideth faith, hope, and love. -- 1 Corinthians 13:13

OUR Father, Who art in Heaven, we thank Thee for Thy wonderful love to us--a love that is infinite and eternal, a love that will not let us go. We love Thee, we adore Thee, we praise Thee, yet we humbly confess that we have not always loved Thee with our whole hearts, and that we have not always loved our neighbor as ourselves. In many ways we have sinned and come short of Thy glory. Have mercy upon us, O God, according to Thy loving kindness and according to the multitude of Thy tender mercies blot our our transgressions. Abide in our home today. May it be none other than the house of God, and the very gate of Heaven. Send us to our daily duties with the conviction that we are about our Father's business. May we live and labor and love as seeing Him Who is invisible. Grant that we may be Christlike in all our dealings with others, whether it be in the home, or in the social circle, or out in the business world. Unify and purify Thy Church, O Christ! Make it a great soul-winning Church. Thy Kingdom come! Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Our prayer we humbly make in the name of the Lord Jesus, Who loved us and gave Himself for us.
