A Note From John Wesley’s Journal

I was reading through John Wesley’s journal a bit today and noticed this:

Monday, January 1, 1739.

My brother Charles and Whitefield (George Whitefield) were present at our love feast in Feterlane, with about sixty of our brethren.  About three in the morning, as we were continuing instant in prayer, the power of God came mightily upon us, inasmuch that many cried out for exceeding joy and many fell to the ground.  As soon as we were recovered a little from that awe and amazement at the presence of His Majesty, we broke out with one voice, “We praise Thee, O God: we acknowledge Thee to be the Lord.”

What a mighty prayer meeting that must have been!  John and Charles Wesley along with George Whitefield and sixty other brethren all seeking God fervently.  I would love to have seen this prayer meeting.

Colossians 4:2.
