Genuine Prayer

There is doubtless, more genuine prayer in the garrets of the poor, in Union houses, under the hedges, in the barns, fields, streets, and secret corners, where God only can see, than in all the houses of the rich, the great and the noble; in the hearts of all the Archbishops, Bishops, and Eeverends, that contend for their printed forms ; and despise the intercession of the Spirit; and in all such preachers, deacons and members of churches, as pray only by natural gifts, and if their prayers be extemporaneous, yet are not the divinely inspired petitions of living souls; longing and sighing dependants upon God’s free mercy and grace.
