3,
Cond.
The
third
Sermon
denyed
it, with
this
reafon,
you
know
not
;hat
you aske;
Likewife
to
fit
at
his
right
hand,and
at
his
left
in
heaven,
which
was
another
requetf
of
the Difciples,he
puts
them by with
this:
Tou
vndertiand
not
what
you
aske
of
the
Father,
and
therefore it
muff
be
according
to
his
will.
And
that
is
the fecond.
Thirdly,we
muff aske
it
in
time,in
due
fea
fon:
for
the
promife
is
true,
Knocke
and
it
fhall
be
o-
pened
to
you,
but
you know
the
foolifh Virgins
knock,
and it
was
not opened to
them; what
was
the
reafon
of
it
r
becaufe
they
askt when
the
time
was
paff:
for
there
is
a
certaine accep-
table time
when
the
Lord
will be
found:
and
when
that opportunity
is
paff,
he
is
found no
more.
It
is
true,
that
this
life
is
the time
of
grace,
but God
in his
fecret counfell
bath
ap-
pointed
a
certaine time
to
every man,
which
is
the
acceptable
time,the
day
of
grace,therefore
he
faith
vnto
thern,This
day
i
f
'you
will
heare:
this
day
:ifyou
will come and
feeke
vnto
mee
,
if
you will pray
vnto
mee,1
will
heare
you:
when.
it's paff,the
Lord
fuffers
not the doores to
ffan
open alwayes,
his
cares
are
not
alwayes open:
therefore
that condition
muff
be carefully
re
membred,
you
muff aske in
time;
It
is
:a
condi-
tion
that
fhould be carefully
thought
on
by
vs;
For,
_
for the
moff
part,wee
fly
to
prayer
as
loab
did to the
c.'tar,hee
went
not to it
for
devoti-
on(for then
hee
would
haue
done
it
before)but
when bee
was in
ditireffe, when hee
was
in
ex-
tremity
