A Prayer for the Lord’s Day, August 23 (based on Psalm 101)

ETERNAL GOD, under whose power are all those whom thou hast placed as rulers and superiors over us, let it please thee so to enlighten the hearts of all judges and magistrates, whom thou hast given us, that without respect of persons they may maintain the righteous and punish the wicked; to the intent that under their protection, we may lead a quiet and peaceable life according to the instruction given us by Jesus Christ thy Son, our only Savior and Redeemer. AMEN.

– Prayers on the Psalms from the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 111.
