I AM truly griev'd for Heart Sins : that notwithstanding all that God has done for me, and in me, I have yet fo vile and sinful; so treacherous and deceitfül a Heart.
I WOULD fain live more by Faith, and less by Sight ; but alas ! so weak and vain am 1'; that when the World seems to smile upon me, I am apr to bę for: getful of God, and my Duty; or else to distrust his Providence, and grow impatient, if crossed and disappointed. When I am under Affliction, I am ready to murmur : and be too much caft down with every little Uneasiness.
WHEN I look to Futurity, I find a strange sollicitousness about what may befall me ; and dare scarcely trust my self into the Hands of God; though he has al. ways been Merciful to me, and is the only Preserver of my Comfort, and my Life.
I AM sorry that in all things I do in the World, I can bring no more Honour to
the Name of God, and the Religion I profess. "NOTWITHSTANDING all the Imperfections I labour under, and all the Crosses which ever I have met with ; nors withstanding all the Hardships and Diffi. culties I ever found in the performance of my Duty, yet I never saw the least reason to repent of the Choice I have made: but can readily subscribe to those words of the Psalmist, Happy is the People whoje ime God is the Lord.
WHEN we are in Difficulties God is the wisest Director ; when in Affliction the most suitable Helper ; when in Troubles the most safe and speedy. Deliverer ; when in Doubts the most sure and kind Resolver : when in Sorrows and Distress the chief, the best, the only Comforter. Tho? Sorrow may sometimes continue for a Night, yet Joy breaks out with the

. IT is, O Lord! by thy Grace that I am what I am: it is by that Grace I have been preserv’d hitherto ; and my Dependance is only, and entirely upon Thee, for further strengthning, and preserving Grace. Grant me the Guidance; Direction, and Assistances of thy Blessed Spirit, to enable me to resist all Satan's Temptations : to preserve me from falling for the time to come: and to enable me to finish my Course with Joy, and Triumph.
BY thy Grace I hope to be sav'd at last, thro' the Merirs, and Mediation of my Lord, and Saviour Jesus Christ. In his Righteousness I delire to appear before thee. In him alone I desire to be found, and hope for Acceptance, and Glory in the World above. Thus I place my Dependance wholly upon Thee; repose my Confidence, and Trust in Thee ; and all my Expectation is from Thee, both in this world, and that which is to come.
O NEVER, never leave me, nos forsake me! but let me have thy encouraging protecting Presence, while on Earth; and whenever thou shalt see meet to call
me hence, may I be admitted into thine immediate Beatifying Presence in Heaven: and to the blissful Fruition of thy self for ever. Grant that I may so live now, as that when the Sound of the last Trumpet shall raise the Dead; and when I shall see my Lord coming in the Clouds of Heaven ; I may be amongst the number of those that shall go forth with Joy to meet him : and fo may be for ever with the Lord : Where I fhall spend a whole Eternity, with the Company of the Glorify'd Saints in perpetual Raptures and Extasies: Singing loud Anthems of Praife and Adoration to thee for thy Redeeming Love and Mercy; thy unparallelld unfocakable Grace and Goodness to loft undone Sinners.
To God the Father, Son and Holy Gholt,
be all Honour and Glory for ever and ever. Amen..
