December 31, 1769

1769 December 31 (Sunday).  Preached Act. 11.18, using 4 pages of Sermon on Joh. 16.8, of Conviction of Sin.  P.M. On Lam. 1.9, and in the Close was very fervent from some View and Sense of Eternal Things.  The Lord grant that from the Consideration of the Last Day of the Year we may be brought to serious Thoughts of the Last Day of our Life, and the Last of the World.  O that Awful Day When Eternity Shall Commence, and that Great Day when the states of all Men shall be determined for Endless Ages!  The Lord grant that it may Suitably impress my own Soul, and influence my whole, brief, uncertain, remaining Life!
