God's Minute

December 12

Pray now unto the Lord our God.--Jeremiah 37:3

WE THANK Thee, our Heavenly Father, for Thy care over us through the past night. We thank Thee for the Bible. Help us to understand it, to believe it, to obey it, and to love it. We thank Thee, Blessed Saviour, that Thou dist come from heaven to earth that we might go from earth to heaven; that Thou didst die that we might live. We thank Thee that Thou didst rise from the dead, ascend up on high, and dost ever live to intercede for us. We thank Thee that Thou didst say, "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." We come to Thee. Have mercy on us. We have done wrong. Forgive us. We want to do right; help us. We are sinners; be Thou our Saviour. fill us with Thy Spirit; consecrate us to Thy service. Comfort the troubled; guide the perplexed; strengthen the weak; succor the tempted. Bless our country. Bless Thy Church everywhere, and bless all Christian workers. Fill the whole world with Thy glory. We ask all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and for His sake we pray:

"God bless our going out,
Nor less our going in,
And make them sure.
God bless our daily bread,
And bless whate'er we do, whate'er endure,
May death unto His peace awake us,
And heirs unto His salvation make us"

Amen.

Hey, my name is Parish Hartley. I am a church planter/pastor in Helena, Montana. I have an early copy of "God's Minute" (1916, 1923). I really like Webster's prayer and I noticed that you posted it on your blog from a new edition of the book. There are some great preachers and men of God, i.e. Gypsy Smith, William M. Anderson, and others. When I come to a prayer that really speaks to my heart I try to find out more about the person. This proves difficult at times. Anyway, do you have any information listed in the revised edition about the authors? Particularly, Richard Boyd Webster. I would like to use the prayer in a newsletter and I don't want to us it until I know more about him. My email is parishhartley@hotmail.com. Our website is capitalbaptistfellowship.com. Thanks for any response and information you might be privy to.
