A Prayer for the Lord’s Day, December 28 (Based on Psalm 1)

“O MERCIFUL AND HEAVENLY FATHER, who has created us unto blessedness and sovereign felicity, and has given unto us thy holy law, to be the only rule and measure, whereby we should live well and godly, make us by thy good grace to renounce our own carnal and fleshly desires, and all evil company , eschewing the way of sinners, that we may bring forth such fruits of the Spirit that, being always under thy holy protection, we may have perfect assurance and confidence; that when thy Son Jesus Christ, shall appear to divide the goats from the sheep, we may be accounted among the number of them that are redeemed by his blood. Amen.”

Prayers on the Psalms from the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 39-40.
