Whether it shall be the will of Providence to continue to us the favour of his protection in our temporal affairs, and to bring us prosperously through the external difficulties with which we are surrounded; or whether it shall please him to vex our Sion, and to suffer it to be assailed and disturbed ; of one thing we are sure, that, whatever our lot, it is intended to effect some wise purpose or other; that nothing can happen to us by chance ; and we may be satisfied, that controlled by the holy Spirit of God, all things will have their appointed aim.

And may we be enabled “ by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things.” And when our earthly work is done, and it shall please our Master to call us hence, may we be " ready to depart in peace,” and may we rest in this

blessed assurance, that “ our labour has not been in vain in the Lord.”

Which God, of his infinite mercy, grant, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
