Stoke - John Wesley (1762)

The congregation came from many miles around and God was in the midst of them. Their hearty prayers went up on every side, and many felt the answer to them.

Wed. 6.-The largeness of the congregation at five showed they were not forgetful hearers. I preached longer than I am accustomed to and, but still they were not satisfied. Many crowded after me into the dwelling-house. After speaking a few words I went to prayer. A cry began and soon spread through the whole company so that my voice was lost. Two seemed to be distressed above all the rest. We continued wrestling with God till one of them had a good hope and the other was ' filled with joy and peace in believing.'
