Thursday June 10th 1849
We have been presented once more
to see a Sabbath morning through the merices of Providence
Attended church had a very few practical remarks by
Mr. Dennison from the 5th chap. 17th verse of
Paul to the Thessalonians. Pray without ceasing.
Lord teach us how to pray and let us pray without ceasing.
It seems to me that I enjoy the pleasures of this
wicked world more than I give to the glorious
service of the living God. I fear I am living [?]
God in the world. I feel I do not appreciate the numer
ous privileges extended to me as should be done.
I am too careless, too indifferent about the performance
of them. Lord have mercy upon us. "O my God change
this vile heart and grant the mind which was in
Christ Jesus may be within me. Do I love God
as I should is often an anxious inquiry with me.
I know Satan strives with me, he is trying to make
me his own, he desireth to lift me as [wheat?] Lord
stretch forth thy strong arm of defense and
save from the reward of the wicked through
Jesus my Saviour.
