“A Collection of Forms of Prayer For Every Day in the Week.” Recommended by the Rev. Mr. Whitefield. The Third Edition. Published in London, Printed for James Hutton at the Bible and Sun without Temple-Bar. 1738.

The first paragraph of the preface to the book lets you know who should not purchase this book.

"The following Collection of Prayers is designed only for those who, by the Mercy of GOD, have, first, Leisure and Resolution to set apart at least half an Hour twice a Day, for their private Addresses to Him; and, secondly, a sincere Reverence for, if not some Acquaintance with, the Ancient Christian Church. He who has not the former Qualifications, will take Offence at the Length; he who has not the latter, at the Matter of them."

1. The intention of the Collector of this book , not the author, was first to have Forms of Prayer for every Day in the Week, each of which contained something of Deprecation, Petition, Thanksgiving, and Intercession:
2. To have such Forms for those Days which the Christian Church has ever judged peculiarly proper for Religious Rejoicing…explicit and large in Acts of Love and Thanksgiving.
3. To have such for those Days, which from the Age of the Apostles have been set apart for Religious Mourning…but were full and express in Acts of Contrition and Humiliation.
4. To have Intercessions every Day, for all those whom our own Church directs us to remember in our Prayers.
5. To comprise in the course of Petitions for the Week, the whole Scheme of our Christian Duty.

This Prayer Book asks General Questions during the day’s prayers. Some are part of the Morning Prayer time and others the Evening Prayer session. The following are just ten examples of these numerous General Question that are presented to the reader throughout this book.

1. Have I mention’d any Failing or Fault of any Man, when it was not necessary for the good of another?
2. Have I laboured to make this Day (Sunday) a Day of Heavenly Rest, sacred to Divine Love?
3. Did I think of GOD first and last?
4. Am I resolved to do all the Good I can this Day, to be diligent in the Business of my Calling?
5. Have I contradicted any one, either where I had no good End in View, or where there was no Probability of Convincing?
6. Have I let him, I thought in the Wrong [in a trifle] have the last word?
7. Have I desired the Praise of Men?
8. Have I despised any one’s Advice?
9. Have I endeavoured to will what GOD Wills, and that only?
10. Have I endeavoured to be Cheerful, Mild and Courteous in whatever I said or did?

This handsomely bound 27 page pamphlet of George Whitefield's sermon speaks of and to the lukewarm pretenders and betrayers of the Christian faith. Whitefield organizes his exposition into 4 major sections: I. Defining the "Almost Christian"; II. The reasons for their prevalence; III. The spiritual ineffectualness of lukewarm Christianity; and IV. An exhortation for the striving towards altogether Christianity. We could only hope the inward working of God's Spirit would convict such individuals as they read or listen to this historical piece.

Absolutely incredible. A true tour de force regarding the coming wrath of an Almighty God upon each of the unregenerate. A Spirit-led execution by Jonathan Edwards, and a handsomely bound piece by Mr. Moore at 18thCenturyBibles. If you have not yet had the privilege of realizing our position as worms in this fallen state, this sermon will make quick work of you.

the description says 'small print' - it's right. very very small! neat item but I need a magnifying glass or hold it very close up! 3 columns of Psalms and all fit in a small booklet probablynot 1/4 inch thick! the really cool thing is they rhyme or 'metered' I think it says in the description so this is really neat to have! I'd like to have this larger though but it's a lot to bind inexpensively like it is here.
