Of the Parts of Prayer.

THE several sorts or parts of Prayer are by the Apostle reduced to these four Heads, 1 Tim. 2. 1.

  • SUPPLICATION.
  • PRAYER.
  • INTERCESSION.
  • THANKSGIVING.
  • ...I. Supplication is the Confessing of Sins, and imploring Pardon and Reconciliation with God.

  • ...II. Prayer is the petitioning for sup∣ply of all good things, Spiritual and Temporal, which we have need or use of, for our Souls or Bodies.
  • ...III. Intercession is the praying for others, as well as our selves, ex∣tending to all sorts and states of men in the world.
  • ...IV. Thanksgiving is the returning of Praise to God for all his Mer∣cies and Blessings bestowed on us.

And this last is the most plea∣sant and delightful part of all the worship of God, according to that saying of the Prophet David, It is a good thing to sing Praises un∣to our God, yea a joyful and pleasant thing it is to be thankful, Psal. 14. 7. 1.
