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,
ist. By earnest prayer. He THAT

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.
