pulse of the renewed mind in regard to itself, is to arise and go to its Father, the first wish of the same mind in relation to others, must be to carry them along with it; that, where it has found relief and satisfaction, they may find the same blessings also. Religion in the family is only the fruit and the index of religion in the closet and religion in the heart; and he who knows what it is in his own person to enjoy the favour and grace of God, will feel that it is as much his privilege as his duty, to engage in exercises which directly tend to bring his children and dependents within the sphere of all he most wishes for them, in time and through eternity.

and humiliation. In going through the volume, the reader will easily be
able to mark prayers suited to occasions of thanksgiving, and seasons of
affliction, sickness, &c., in addition to the few to which titles to that effect
are prefixed.


“ The volume now before us is, in its strain, decidedly, and throughout, evangelical. In its diction, we have the elegance of the man of literature, united with the plainness and simplicity of the Bible Christian. We recommend the volume most earnestly to all who stand in need of such auxiliaries, as possessing superior value."--Edinburgh Christian Instructor.

“ The afflictive dispensation which suspended the personal efforts of the pious author, has been the means of furnishing to the public what we consider one of the best aids to family devotion which has lately appeared. We heartily recommend the volume to public favour, and trust that its circulation may be commensurate with its worth.”Edinburgh Literary Jour. nal.

“ The prayers which this volume contains are pervaded by a spirit of deep and earnest piety; the language employed is invariably elegant, yet most simple and Scriptural.

We take leave of the volume, assuring those who find it necessary to use a form, that the prayers which it con. tains are truly excellent."-Presbyterian Review, No. III.

“We cannot recommend them too strongly to the attention of all. They are at once doctrinal, argumentative, and devotional. They contain a view of the nature and obligations of the holy ordinance to which they refer, so clear and simple that even a child may easily comprehend it, combined with such a fulness and such an unction as will delight the mature Christian, and so fortified by argument as to leave no place for the gainsayer."-Christian Instructor.
