“Prayer on Psalm 88” – The Scottish Psalter

“Eternal Father,

Who, for our great good, dost cast us into many calamities and miseries,
despise not our prayers, lest in Thy fury Thou does reject and cast us clean away.

Have pity on us Thy poor servants,
who call daily upon Thee,
and replenish us with Thy grace,
to the intent that all those in whose eyes we are contemptible and despised may understand that yet Thou lovest us,
in Thy well-beloved Son, Jesus Christ.


–“Psalm 88” in Prayers on the Psalms From the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 102-103.
