December 11, 1774

1774 December 11 (Sunday).  I have spent my time so much on my forenoon preparations it provided Sufficient for two Exercises, but I could not divide it; and therefore delivered the whole in one.  It was on Mat. 26.35.  Administered the Lords Supper.  May God graciously accept us, manifest Himself to us, and raise up in us a grateful Sense of His Goodness!  May He also guard us against self-Confidence, arm us with Vigilance, and keep us in the Hour of Temptation! Mrs. Maynard, Mrs. Sever, and Miss Suse Brigham dined here.  P.M. Delivered my sermon on Prov. 23.5.  May it Serve to wean my Heart from this transitory world!
