"Help Lord"

How we need the Lord to draw near and visit us in grace and power. These recent years have been distressing years in many ways. "Help, Lord, for the godly man ceaseth" may well be our cry. Yet we cannot but have great hope in our hearts if we know the Lord.

The Summer Conference is an opportunity to meet together and worship Him. There is much happiness in meeting together under the preaching of the Word. There are times when we are aware that the Spirit is upon the preached Word.

The Summer Conference is an opportunity to call upon His Name. There can be in the worship a desire that is like a prayer rising to Heaven. There are also opportunities to meet to pray in the newly established morning prayer meetings. 

Despite our sins and many faults, of which we repent, we pray the Lord will be pleased to own us and draw near. Above all, we wish Him to have all glory and for Jesus Christ to be exalted in our midst.

suggestions on

"Within these fifty years there have been five or six very great awakenings. I am persuaded, that unless we are favoured with frequent revivals, and a strong, powerful work of the Spirit of God, we shall, in a great degree, degenerate, and have only a 'name to live:' religion will soon lose its vigour; the ministry will hardly retain its lustre and glory; and iniquity will, of consequence, abound." Thomas Charles
