Sept: 26. God heard prayer in the season of the week, and yet mixed with rain, the lord in mercy good to us in our health, when many are very sick in other places, lord I bless thee for it, continue it, as a mercy to me and unto mine, our servant went away, as indeed very unfit for us, the lord bless us with a servant for his names sake, heard of Mrs Eldreds sickness the lord open her eyes, and sanctify her heart, god was good to me in the word, oh how Christ glorifes himself in his saints, oh that I could heartily set my heart to glorify him in his word, and worship and saints that are dear to him.
