Now
when the
Lord
of
heaven faith
,
aske
what
you
will
at
my
hands and
I
will doe it;
(hall
wee
not
feeke
to
him,and
make
vfe
of
fuch
a
promife
as
thisrBeloued
we are
too
backward
in
this,
wee should be
more
aboundant
in
this
duty
then
we
are, wee fhould make
more
ac-
count
of
it
:
For whatfoever
the
cafe
be,
if
you doe
but
feeke
to
the
Lord, ifthou
doll but
fet
downe
thy
refolution with thy
felfe: well
I
fee
it
is a
thing
(if
1
looke
vpon the creature
&
the
meanes)
I
haue
little
hope of,
but
the
Lord
is
able
to
do
it,
and
therefore
I
will goe
to him,
I
will weary him, and
I
will
not
giue him
over,
1.
will
not
giue
him,
nor my
felfe
any refl,
till
I
haue
obtained it
:
I
fay it
is
impoffible
thou
thouldefl
faile in fuch
a
cafe.
Onely remember
to
be
importunate,for
an
importunate
fuiter
he
cannot deny. You know the parable
of
the vn-
jufl
Judge.
You
know allo
the
parable
of
the
man
that
was
in
bed with
his
children, when
the
widdow
was
importunate
,
when
thee
knockt and
would
giue him
no
refl,he
giues
her
r
edreffe; the
other
rifeth and giueth
his
friend
as
many
loaues
as
he
will,
faith
the
Text;
yea
though
the were
not
his
friend;
(for this
is
the
meaning
ofit.;)
If
faith hee,the
Lord
had
not
much loue
to
you,if
he
had not
fuch
an affecti-
on,
if
you did not come
to
him in
the name
of
Chrift whom
he
loues,in
whom
hee
is
ready
to
grant
whatfoever
you
aske,
if
bee
were
not
a
friend
to you;
yet
for
your
very
importunity,
