Sept: 2. God good to us in outward mercies, Mary well of her arm. blessed be god, lord bring my family in frame, and in subjection unto thee, and rejoice in me to do me and mine good, a quiet Sabbath, lord let my heart keep a rest in thee, and so unto thy glory. oh the deadness and wonderful backwardness in my heart to a liveliness in doing gods service oh lord, I sigh and look up unto thee, when will you heal me.
