One Duty Should Not Displace Another

    There is secret prayer, or closet prayer, when a man gets by himself alone in secret, and pours forth his heart to God; and this sort of prayer our Saviour exhorts us to; nor can a true believer live without it, though being found in this we ought not to neglect family duty any day: one duty should not displace another. "When thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father," &C.
