September 24, 1752

1752 September 24 (Sunday).  Through the great Goodness of God to me I went to His House, and was enabled to perform divine service both a. and p.m. but omitted Reading: I preach’d a.m. on Mic. 7.9.  P.M. (my son Ebenezer appearing Bridegroom) I preach’d a.m. on 1 Chron. 29.19.[1]  Nor was I at Eve Extremely overcome.  Blessed by God for His great Goodness and Mercy to me!  O that I might never forget His Benefits!  and might it please Him to perfect the recovery — that the Soul may be restor’d and have Eternal Life.  N.B. Mr. John Martyn junior din’d with us.

[1][Additional note: 1 Chron. 29.19, “And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the which I have made provision.”]
