Journal of John Wesley

March 25, 2011

Ray Ortlund gives this quote recalling an encounter with the presence of God from John Wesley’s Journal:

Mr. Hall, Kinchin, Ingham, Whitefield, Hutchins and my brother Charles were present at our love-feast in Fetter Lane, 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, insomuch 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.’
