Prayer in Great Disgust and Disgrace. Luther.


424.  Prayer in Great Vexation or Disgrace (Widerwaertigkeit)

Job discussing theology with his dumbass friends and wife: “Wait a second… I don’t preach enough Gospel?”

Martin Luther(trans. Sept. 5 2012)

Oh God, do not punish me in wrath Psalm 6:1.  Let Your punishment be in grace and here in time; punish as Father and not as judge.  Oh God, be angry here on earth.  Strike here, beat here, but there in eternity, spare us.  Amen.
