March 3, 1728

1728 March 3 (Sunday).  I preach’d on Is. 1.4, both a. and p.m.  I was not a little affected in the afternoon.  I request of God to make these sermons profitable to my Self as well as to others that I may deplore my own Iniquities with which as I have been laden with the guilt of them.  So God grant that I may be after a godly Sort weary and heavy laden, so under a sense of them that I may be a true mourner for the Sins of others and lament over the Calamities of the Land!
