And this is the manner of their worship. They are to wait upon the Lord, to meet in the silence of the flesh, and to watch for the stirring of his life, and the breakings forth of his power amongst them. And in the breakings forth of that power they may pray, speak, exhort, rebuke, sing, or mourn, and so on, according as the spirit teaches, requires, and gives utterance.

Quoted in chapter 6, “Worship,” of Robert Leach’s Pendle Hill pamphlet #29: The Inward Journey of Isaac Penington, 1945.
