1759 January 7 (Sunday). We are to bless God that not only the New Year has begun, but He permitts us to begin the Sabbaths of the Year! To His Name be Glory! Read 1 Chron. 35 and John 20. Preached a. and p.m. on 2 Cor. 4.18. And O that God would pardon my Weakness and Miscarriages, and add His efficacious Blessing, for my own as well as the people’s profiting! In the Evening after Family Exercises, read some accounts of the Martyrs and their suffering — especially Mr. Lamberts. May God grant us Establishment in the Faith!
