The DUTY of secret prayer. All the force of a command. It is more by example than by precept that this duty is enforced in Scripture. Is essential, because we have wants which can be presented before God in no other times are specified for the performance of this duty. II. The proper MODE AND SEASON'S of secret prayer. 2 Do all that may provoke spiritual appetite. There are two things that provoke appetite. Exercise: a man by walking and stirring gets a stomach to his meat. So by the exercise of holy duties the spiritual appetite is increased. Exercise thyself unto godliness' (1 Timothy ). Many have left off closet prayer. 2. Then they cast off by degrees private duties: as closet prayer, curbing their lusts, watching, sorrow for sin, and the like. 3. Then they shun the company of lively and warm Christians. 4. After that they grow cold to public duty: as hearing, reading, godly conference, and the like. 5.
