April 21, 1757

1757 April 21 (Thursday).  Publick Fast, on account of the Signal Advantages which the French gained over us in the Year Past, and on Account of our present Circumstances.  I preached a.m. on 2 Chr. 6.34.35, repeating sermon on 1 K. 8.44.45.  P.M. preached on Ps. 78, v. 34 to 37, which May God bless (as to the Special and Saving Good of the people, So to my own)!  I desire to lament my unpreparedness and Slothfulness.  May the Lord quicken me, and recover me!
