When we consider that there are in the city of Philadelphia about
30,000 people of color, we see there is still room for further effort in
filling up these churches. And may we not hope that God's blessing
will still be upon us, and, trusting upon his favor and loving kindness,
and with hearts filled with thankfulness for his past mercies, go for¬
ward, and, with united hearts, do with all our might what our hands
find. to do. And now unto Him that is able to do exceeding
abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power
that worketh in us, unto Him be glory in the Church by Jesus Christ
throughout all ages world without end. Amen.
