Prayers on the Psalms
From the Scottish Psalter of 1595
The Scottish Psalter of 1595 was unique in that it contained a series of prayers on the Psalms. Regarded as ‘one of the little-known devotional treasures of the Scottish Church.’ These prayers breathe the spirit of humble confidence in God in the midst of trouble and persecution. Presented here in slightly updated form as Prayers on the Psalms. This volume is sure to suggest much matter for prayer in public, private, and family worship.
‘Prayers on the Psalms is a triple treasure to me. It was edited by my beloved mentor David B. Calhoun, who is truly a gift to the church. It is drawn from the great Scottish Psalter of 1595 and the translated French prayers of Huguenot pastor martyr Augustin Marlorat, and it is based on the Psalms God has given his church to sing and pray in joy and tears. Read it devotionally and pray it passionately.’

‘To read the work of a Puritan doctor of the soul is to enter a rich world of spiritual theology to feed the mind, heart-searching analysis to probe the conscience, Christ-centered grace to transform the heart, and wise counsel to direct the life. This series of Pocket Puritans provides all this in miniature, but also in abundance.’
— Sinclair B. Ferguson
Dedicated to French Huguenots, Scottish Covenanters, and all others who, in the best of times and worst of times have read, sung, prayed, and loved.
