A Puritan Theology of Intercessory Prayer : Mourning over the Sins of Our Times

Tempus faciendi, Domine.
I'm going to put this here in the spiritual warfare forum, for it involves more than "mere" prayer.

My point in posting is to request help in perfecting this bibliography. Can you add other citations to the list? My eyes were first opened to this doctrine by the reading of William Jenkin's sermon (see link below), and from there I began to compile this list. Other sources and treatments would be appreciated.
