glorious_a power_n be_v requisite_a to_o perfect_v this_o grace_n which_o argue_v this_o to_o be_v so_o difficult_a a_o exercise_n above_o any_o other_o and_o that_o our_o nature_n be_v infinite_o

second_o this_o give_v we_o a_o clear_a reason_n why_o prayer_n of_o all_o other_o mean_n head_n shall_v be_v direct_v by_o the_o apostle_n and_o extraordinary_o set_v upon_o by_o we_o as_o the_o most_o effectual_a yea_o as_o a_o only_a mean_n to_o obtain_v this_o for_o see_v that_o power_n lie_v out_o of_o ourselves_o in_o god_n which_o must_v effect_v this_o in_o we_o then_o sure_o nothing_o can_v be_v judge_v so_o prevail_v as_o faith_n and_o prayer_n which_o be_v the_o grace_n in_o and_o by_o which_o the_o soul_n go_v out_o of_o itself_o in_o a_o sense_n of_o its_o utter_a insufficiency_n supplicate_v the_o grace_n in_o god_n heart_n to_o exert_v this_o power_n of_o his_o good_a pleasure_n and_o so_o do_v draw_v it_o forth_o and_o bring_v it_o down_o into_o the_o heart_n and_o then_o three_o this_o head_n give_v we_o the_o high_a encouragement_n that_o we_o may_v obtain_v this_o perfect_a work_n of_o it_o however_o remote_a from_o it_o the_o present_a temper_n of_o our_o spirit_n may_v seem_v to_o be_v to_o we_o see_v that_o no_o less_o than_o such_o a_o glorious_a power_n be_v requisite_a to_o effect_v it_o in_o the_o strong_a christian_n and_o a_o power_n so_o glorious_a be_v able_a to_o work_v it_o in_o the_o weak_a let_v we_o pray_v therefore_o with_o all_o vehemency_n for_o ourselves_o as_o the_o apostle_n do_v for_o those_o colossian_n that_o this_o glorious_a power_n may_v come_v upon_o we_o and_o strengthen_v our_o inward_a man_n as_o it_o be_v elfwhere_o with_o all_o might_n which_o may_v in_o we_o be_v the_o 17._o effect_n of_o that_o

serve_v to_o strengthen_v you_o against_o the_o next_o trial_n that_o shall_v come_v but_o you_o must_v still_o have_v a_o new_a special_a might_n for_o every_o new_a trial_n your_o dependence_n therefore_o be_v great_a upon_o god_n for_o this_o perfect_a work_n of_o patience_n and_o yet_o your_o encouragement_n be_v great_a for_o as_o it_o must_v be_v that_o if_o god_n will_v please_v to_o strengthen_v we_o under_o any_o great_a unusual_a tentation_n that_o he_o shall_v put_v forth_o no_o less_o than_o this_o glorious_a power_n so_o we_o have_v hear_v how_o in_o our_o apostle_n he_o have_v promise_v he_o will_v give_v it_o and_o give_v it_o free_o and_o liberal_o to_o they_o that_o make_v it_o their_o main_n constant_a earnest_a business_n to_o ask_v it_o and_o therefore_o his_o grace_n if_o apply_v to_o be_v engage_v to_o put_v this_o power_n forth_o it_o can_v but_o be_v a_o great_a support_n to_o a_o weak_a heart_n that_o find_v itself_o so_o remote_a and_o distant_a from_o such_o a_o work_n of_o patience_n and_o weak_a also_o in_o comparison_n of_o find_v such_o a_o inward_a might_n that_o it_o shall_v have_v ground_n and_o cause_n to_o think_v and_o to_o believe_v that_o god_n glorious_a power_n be_v engage_v most_o sree_o to_o be_v abundant_o and_o ready_o put_v forth_o if_o continue_v to_o be_v seek_v unto_o why_o this_o say_v the_o weak_a heart_n
