Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

Tennent begins this sermon on the subject of prayer by referencing Psalms 63:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 5:25, Colossians 4:2-3, and James 5:13. From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1747, then delivered it again in 1749, 1752, 1756, 1759, and 1764.
