Oct: 16. god good to me and mine in my health, but my heart dead and listless towards god, so shut up in prayer public and private that I cannot utter my condition with any feeling before the lord, oh that god would quicken me that I might recover strength from the god of my strength. oh let me feel thy help near at hand, and let my diligence be doubled as my god is multiplying his mercy on me in my health.
