O Lord God, I thank You that the knowledge of Your presence kept us from sin today, made us more gracious in dealing with our fellow human beings, and more zealous in performing the duties You have given us.
O Lord, we need Your presence every passing hour; “What but Thy grace can foil the Tempter’s power? Who like Thyself our guide and stay can be?”
Through cloud and sunshine, oh, abide with us! We pray, heavenly Father, that You would reveal Yourself especially to those lives are passing through trial and tribulation.
Teach them to know that “ills have no weight and tears no bitterness, with Thee at hand to bless,” and that nothing “will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Stay with us day and night, and let us hear You say: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you. I will uphold you with My victorious right hand.”
In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
