of
all when
you heare
fuch
a
promif
e
as
this,
That
whatfoever you
aske
you
(hall
be
heard
in
it;
you
fhould
hence learne,
to
fpend
Tome
time
in
the
meditation
of
this great
pri-
viledge
that the
Saints
haue,
&
none
but
they;
This
I
propound
to
every
mans
confideration,
that thofe
that
are
not
Chriftians, that
is,
thofc
that
are not-
regenerate
may
know
what they
look
by
ir;
and
thofe that
are, may
vnderĂ­land
the happines
of
their
condition,
that they
may
learne
to
magnify
it,
and
to
bleffe
themfelues
in
that condition
,
that they
haue
fuch
a
great
priviledge
as
this:
It
is
no more
but
aske
and
haue,
therefore that which
in
the
third
place
I
exhort
you
to,
is
this,
namely
to
fpend
time
in
the meditation
of
it,
to
confider
what
a
great
advantage
it
is
:

prayer.
I fay
confider this mercy
as
you
ought
to
doe,
it
is
part
ofthe
thankes we owe
to the
Lord
for
fo an
exceeding priviledge;
That

is
no
more, but
