Ridgemont (1859)




In this small village the Lord has been pleased to favour us with a season of Revival. On several occasions during the last two years, believers had been led to meet together for special and continuous prayer for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Towards the close of 1859, many were persuaded in their hearts that the blessing was nigh at hand. It was graciously and copiously vouchsafed during the meetings held in the second week of January last. That was felt to be, what it has been so fitly named, "The blessed week," and it will ever be memorable in the spiritual history of very many in this neighbourhood. All classes have shared in the blessing, either in the way of requickening or of conversion; members of churches, the Sabbath-schools, the aged, the indifferent, and the depraved. It is humbly and gratefully believed that at least sixty persons, in connexion with the Wesleyan and Baptist interests, "have passed from death unto life."Our constant prayer is, that the Lord will still cause his face to shine upon us, and upon the whole Israel of God. - To Him alone be all the glory. Amen.
