December 3, 1772

1772 December 3 (Thursday).  Public Thanksgiving.  Preached (long) on Prov. 3.9.10.  It is my earnest prayer that God would please to affect us all with this Subject; and that we may So improve this Solemnity that we may give Glory to our Great Benefactor.  May I in particular be properly excited, heartily acknowledging, praising, extolling and thanking Him for all He has done and bestowed — and may all I enjoy or may yet be indulged with, be devoted to the Honour and Glory of God!
