5. Set apart this day to seek unto god for my wife , the continuance of her life and loins: 2. god would bestow upon me a frame of her heart and on her, that suits the ordinance of his Supper, and help me in trying my own heart 3. that god would in mercy stand by me in this work with wisdom and uprightness, and lay an awe upon the spirits of carnal persons not to be a trouble to us.
