 “The living shall praise Thee.” – Isaiah 38:19 ~

Heavenly Father, we thank thee for the refreshing sleep of last night, for sparing us to see another day, for our loved ones, and for this family altar, for our loved ones, and for this family altar, for the gift of Thy son, Jesus Christ, and for His love and self-sacrifice.
We sincerely repent of all wrongdoing. Pardon all our sins, and give to us a forgiving spirit. Help us to trust in Thy Word, and may we find in it medicine for the mind, and food for the soul.
We pray for our beloved country, and for all in authority, in our own and other nations. Bless the poor and needy, the sick and dying, the bereaved and all who are in distress. We plead with Thee for any who are wrongfully treated, until “justice roll on like water, and righteousness as a perennial stream.”
Abundantly reward the preaching of Thy Gospel everywhere, and bless our church and minister with an outpouring of Thy Holy Spirit, until one shall not have to say to another—“Know the Lord, –for all shall know Him from the least even unto the greatest.”
And to Thee will we give the glory forever and ever. Amen
By: Capt. (Rev.) H. S. Mullowney, M.A., B.D., Owen Sound, Ont., Canada

 “He that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass Him about.” – Ps. 32:10 ~

Our Father, in Whom we live and move and have our being, we thank Thee for Thy care, for our home, for our parents, and our friends. We thank Thee for the joy of salvation, for the health of body and vigor of mind, for the joy and delights of social intercourse. We thank Thee for Jesus Christ, for His sacrifice for us, and for the promise of eternal life through faith in Him.
Teach us, our Father, how to appreciate Thy love to us, Thy boundless care and Thy constant watchfulness. Indicate to us the things which Thou wouldst have us to do. Teach us how to live so as to bring joy and blessing into the lives of others. Give unto us the Holy Spirit, that we may know the true meaning of Thy Word, and how to do Thy will. Help us to watch and pray as we walk in the midst of temptation. Make us to abhor evil and to cleave only to what is good. Strengthen us in the day of adversity. Protect us from the snares of prosperity. Help us to do only the things which are pleasing to Thee. Hear us, O God, in this our prayer, for Jesus’ sake.  Amen

 “For the Father Himself loveth you.” – John 17:26 ~


Our Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for the peace, the rest, the comfort of the night through which we have come. We surely have reason to be grateful for Thy increasing care. Thou art ever thinking of us, and we sleep in safety under the shadow of Thy protection presence.

Now we enter upon the light and blessing of another day. May it be a clean day, a glad day, and an undefiled day! May no dark, impure thoughts obtain possession of our hearts! May we have the grace to put away everything that is sinful and selfish and unworthy of Thee!

Enable us to overcome every form of temptation. In moments of weakness or weariness, or doubt come to us, may we have gracious help from Thee.  In our business life, our home life, with our associates, with our friends, may we be thoughtful, tender, loving, generous, ever bearing in mind that we are to have the Spirit of our Divine Master “who went about doing good.”

Teach us to be pitiful, to be kindly affectionate, to speak words of gentleness, and to remember especially the Wayward, the unfortunate, the sorrow-stricken. So fill us with Thy Spirit as to make us joyous, radiant, eager for service, anxious only to do Thy Will. We ask all these favors in the Name of Thy Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

April Twenty-Eighth ~ God’s Daily Minute


 “Refoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Thess. 5:16-23 ~

Create in us a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within us. Cast us not away from Thy presence, and take not Thy Holy Spirit form us. We commend to Thy loving protection all those for whom we long to pray (especially those whom we now name in our hearts before thee ***).
Give to them all their heart’s desire, we pray Thee, in as far as Thou seest it best, for Jesus sake. Bring each of us, O Father, to the close of this day in peace and honor. For all those who love us so much better than we deserve, we thank Thee. For their sakes, help us to sanctify ourselves this day. And do Thou, O Lord, grant that we may abide steadfast in this purpose, and by Thy continual aid be fully master of all the desires and emotions of our hearts. For Jesus’ sake.  Amen.

O Heavenly Father, shed abroad Thy love in our hearts and keep[ us loving, hopeful, patient, kind and true, thus blessing all with whom we come in contact, and glorifying Thy Great Name Who are worthy of all our heart’s devotion forever and ever.
Through Jesus Christ, our Saviour, Who loveth us and loosed us from our sins in His own blood. Amen
