Let's exchange controversy for prayer

Fri 9 Oct 1741: The same Spirit ‘helped our infirmities’ at the hour of intercession; and again at Kingswood in the evening. I was just laid down when one came and told me Howell Harris desired to speak with me at Bristol, being just come from London and having appointed to set out for Wales at three in the morning. I went, and found him with Mr. Humphreys and Mr. S. They immediately fell upon their favourite subject; on which, when we had disputed two hours and were just where we were at first, I begged we might exchange controversy for prayer. We did so and then parted in much love, about two in the morning.
