Excerpt from Thy Kingdom Come: Daily Devotions; September 18 to November 8, 1938
We bless Thee for Thy safe-keeping through the night and ask Thee that this new day may be one of willing and loyal service to Thee, the God of all grace, who art able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think. We remember and acknowledge before Thee that every moment of this day belongs to Thee. We look up to Thy face and own to Thee that in all our life and work, whether of the house or of the study or of the school or of business or of the church, we are Thine, bought with Thy Son's precious blood and sealed with Thy Spirit to be Thine own possession; and we present ourselves anew to Thee, to live to Thee, to whom we belong. Show Thy power in our weakness this day, and in all we do and say and think make us instruments of Thy grace to the glory of the name in which is all our salvation. Amen.
Into Thy tender and mighty hands, 0 heavenly Father, we commit ourselves and all our loved ones for this night. For us the time of darkness and rest has come again, but not for Thee. Thou art Light, and in Thee is no darkness at all. Thou never sleepest, 0 Shepherd of Thy. Saints. While field and city lie under the cloud of night, all is Open unto Thee, and all who look to Thee are kept by Thee in the pure light of the secret of Thy presence. Now, in that secret place we will lie down, even as Samuel slept in the sanctuary of old. We will rest, as it were, near the Ark of the Covenant and beneath the blood of sprinkling and within the sweet sound of the voice which speaks in the Holy Place. And so shall our rest be good and our awakening full of peace and praise; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
