God's Minute

November 15

I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the Lord; O Lord, I beseech Thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.--Psalm 116:1-5

OUR Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for this new day, with its privileges and opportunities. May we in gratitude for Thy love and mercy, serve Thee today with sincere hearts. Give us grace to do Thy will, and to accept Thy purposes for us in the spirit of joyful obedience, believing that Thy will is always best.

Keep our hearts from sin, our minds pure, and our motives true. Forgive us when we fail. Grant that we may consecrate the commonplace duties of the day with the consciousness of Thy presence. Whether the day brings prosperity or loss, sunshine or shadow, blessings or bereavement, may our faith remain firm, our love unfailing, our hope undaunted. Through us today may mankind be blessed, and the coming of Thy Kingdom hastened, for His name's sake.

Amen.

Rev. H.H. Bingham, B.A.,

This morning's prayer was marked with the corner of the page turned down and some underlining. For some reason, this prayer was important to my grandfather or my grandmother or both.

I wonder if the date, November 15th, had a particular significance to them. Maybe it just spoke to them in their circumstances on one particular November 15th. The book was in their possession for many long years before it was given to me.

Whatever the reason, the underlining reminded me yet again of the prayers of my grandparents. I know they prayed for my salvation and that of all my cousins.

What a blessing it is to have had praying grandparents!
