Are Prayer Meetings examples of spiritual pride?  Or are they sincere pleadings to God for revival and spiritual renewal? - These are the questions dealt with in this book.

Worldcat attributes this to Griswold. A defense of prayer meetings against objections to them printed in the Episcopal Register.

Alexander Viets Griswold, D.D. (1766-1843), born in Simsbury, Connecticut. After studying law for several years he entered the ministry and was ordained in 1795. He was elected Bishop of the Eastern diocese in 1810, being consecrated to that position in May of 1811. For some years he served both as parish priest and as bishop. He was a supporter of revivals, and was blessed with an extensive revival of religion in his own parish in 1812. He wrote several pieces in defense of revivals and awakenings. “Bishop Griswold was eminently distinguished among the clergy of his Church for his evangelical spirit and earnest religious life.” – M’Clintock & Strong.
