“God…took the work into his own hands”

Jonathan Edwards describing the 1737 revival – this is what we want to happen:

When God in so remarkable a manner took the work into his own hands, there was as much done in a day or two as at ordinary times, with all endeavors that men can use, and with such a blessing as we commonly have, is done in a year.

Jonathan Edwards, A Faithful Narrative (Yale, 1972), 159.
