The
third
Sermón
common
beggery (for
that
is
thepoorel
and
eaf
eft
trade
that condition
hee puts
in) but
,faith;he)
I
vnderllan.d
it
of
a
prayer
to
Gcd,
that kind
of
beggerie
I
meane
;
which
as
it
is
the
hardeft, nothing
more
hard
then to
pray
to-
God
as
we
ought,
So
withall there
is
this
com-
fort
in
it
,
it
is
the richett trade
of
all
others,
there
is
no
way
to inrich our
felues fo
much,
with
all
the
promifes
that
belong either to
this
life, or
to
that
which
is
to
come:
Even
as
you
fee
among
men
,
a
Courtier,
a
Favorite
in
the
Court,
gets
more by one
fuir,
(it
may
be,)
then
a
Tradfinan,or Merchant,
or
husbandman
gets
°
with twenty
yeares
labour,.
though
hee
takes
much paines;
for
one requeft may
bring more
profit,
may
make
a
Courtier
richer,
then
fo
many
yeares
labour
&
paines:
So
in
like cafe
a
C,
ç h
¡
faithfull
prayer, put
vp
to
God,
may
more
pre
-
vaile
with
him
,
wee may
obtain&
more at
his
hands by
it,
then by many
yeares
labour, or
vfing many
ineanes,
and
therefore
it
is
a
rich
trade
,
and
great priviledge.,
a
priviledge
that
we
cannot
thinke enough
of,
that
wee
cannot
efteeme
enough.
You
have heard
ofa
noble
man in
this
Kingdome
,
that
had
a
Ring
given
him
by
the
rseene
,.
with
this promife
,
that
if
he
fènt
that
Ring to
her, at any time
when
hee
was in
diftreife,
the
would
remember
him
and
deliver him;
This
was
a
great priviledge from
a
Prince,
and
yet
you
fee,
what that
was
fiab-
