Pagina 18 - But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do : for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them ; for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask Him.
Pagina 13 - But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet ; and when thou hast shut the door, pray to thy Father which is in secret ; and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

The inwardness and weight of his spirit, the reverence and solemnity of his address and behaviour, and the fewness and fulness of his words, have often struck even strangers with admiration, as they used to reach others with consolation.

Pagina 26 - Author of all our blessings ; and which have often proved times of more than transient benefit. It is our present concern, that no exception to this practice may be found amongst us ; whether it take place on the reading of a portion of the Sacred Volume, or when we are assembled to partake of the provisions with which we are supplied for the sustenance of the body. On these latter occasions, may the hearts of our young friends also, be turned in gratitude to God, who thus liberally provides for...
