Phillip Doddridge – The Rise and Progress of Religion in the Soul – the Prayers

O Lord, my flesh trembleth for fear of thee, and I am afraid of thy judgments. I am afraid lest, even now that I have begun to think of religion, thou shouldst cut me off in this critical and important moment, before my thoughts grow to any ripeness, and blast in eternal death the first buddings and openings of it in my mind. But O spare me, I earnestly entreat thee: for thy mercies’ sake, Spare me a little longer! It may be, through thy grace I shall return.
