Jan: 12. This week the Lord was gracious to me and mine in many outward mercies, peace plenty, health, oh that I could prize this love, merciful in preserving from danger my son from the fire, good in keeping us from many iniquities not having dominion over us, the Lord good to me in the Sabbath, letting out my spirit to beseech me to leave their sins Lord command a blessing, the Lord have the glory of all, the good Lord forgive my many sins, accept of me, and bless me in Jesus Christ.
