”O Lord, I confess I am a poor prisoner to sin and Satan, I would fain be set at liberty to believe thy word, and to do thy will; but, alas, I cannot.  I find many a door fast shut upon me in this prison, and many a lock upon the doors, many lets and impediments which I am never able to remove; and therefore, gracious Lord, do that for me, which neither I myself nor all the friends I can make are able to do for me; pay the debts of thy poor prisoner in my blessed Surety, and set open the prison doors.”  Matthew Lawrence  (1657)
