ALMIGHTY GOD, our Heavenly Father, we thank You that You have taught us to call You ” Father.” In the strength of Your name we go forth to meet the temptations and the duties of this day. May we be worthy of being called Your children. May we have Your patience and tenderness in our dealing with others, especially with the members of our own household. May we have pity for all weak and tempted persons, and lend them our strength, as You lend Your strength to us. Clothe us this day with armor of light. May we have Your purity, Your horror of all evil thoughts and all unholy desires, and may they be overcome and cast out of our hearts by a passion for holiness. Whatever we have to do, may we do it so that it shall be well-pleasing to You. Help us to adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things. Preserve us in all danger, keep us in the ways of Your precepts, and bring us at last to our Father’s house in peace. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. — H. E. Cobb
