A man gets much of Heaven into his heart, in praying for earthly things, if he pray in a spiritual manner; And the reason is, because in prayer he hath converse with, and draws nigh to God, whatsoever lawful thing he prays about.

Delivered in a sermon at Westminster, at the publique convention, (ordered by the Honourable House of Commons) for the taking of the Covenant, by all such, of all degrees, as willingly presented themselves, upon Friday, Octob. 6. 1643 (London: John Rothwell, 1643), p. 29.
