“Lord, teach us lo pray."-LUKE xi. z.
DEVOTION AND PRAYER.
TRUE Devotion consists in having
our hearts always devoted to God, as the sole Fountain of all. Happiness; and who is ready to hear and help his otherwise helpless, miserable creatures.
It is to be attained,
AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS, WILL CERTAINLY BE FILLED.
2dly. By possessing our hearts with a deep sense of our own misery, our wants, and danger : This is the grace of humility.
3dly. By considering God's goodness, power, and readiness to help us : This is called faith in God.
