• My BRETHREN,

THE two things which above all others help to preserve in Christians a spirit of Religion and a reverence of Almighty God, are Daily Prayer, and the frequent receiving of the Holy Sacrament. No person who duly attends these two offices, can be unacquainted with God and his soul; and I may add, that whoever lives in the neglect of them, lives in an habitual for. getfulness of God and his duty: or at best, is lukewarm and indifferent in the concerns of re. ligion.

It is not many months, since I put into your hands, an exhortation to Family-Prayer with two forms of Morning and Evening Prayer for families; fitted also for the use of one person in private. And the good effects which I find that has had among you, encourages me to add this exhortation to the frequent receiving of the Lord's Supper, together with a plain account of the nature and benefits of that hoiy institution, and such helps and directions, as may conduce to make you worthy partakers of it.
