Excerpt from Family Worship: A Series of Prayers, With Doctrinal and Practical Remarks on Passages of Sacred Scripture, for Every Morning and Evening Throughout the Year; Adapted to the Services of Domestic Worship Many difficulties are pled as an apology for neglecting this duty especially, some plead that they cannot overcome their natural reluctance and timidity to engage in prayer in the presence of others. We cannot attach much importance to this as a reason for neglecting the duty; though we doubt not it prevails to a great extent. It is therefore highly necessary to remove it. With such a form as this in his possession, no one may plead such an apology. There is in this work ample matter and variety as a help to beginners and even what may be very useful to stir up devotion, and. Supply varied expression to the more experienced Christian. It is with this view and not to supersede the practice Of extempore prayer, that this work has been projected; and both publishers and contributors would deeply regret if this were the result. They believe, on the other hand, that it will greatly tend to furnish such matter and expression for prayer, as will soon enable any one who devoutly uses it to dispense with forms altogether.
