A Prayer of Calvin

images

Grant, Almighty God, that since we are here exposed to so many evils which suddenly arise like violent tempests, O grant that with hearts raised up to heaven, we may yet acquiesce in Thy hidden providence even though we are so tossed here and there according to the judgment of our flesh yet to remain fixed in this truth that Thou wouldst have us believe: that all things are governed by Thee and that nothing takes place except through Thy will so that in the greatest confusions we may always clearly see Thy hand and that Thy counsel is altogether right and perfectly and singularly wise and just. And may we ever call upon Thee and flee to this port that we are tossed here and there in order that Thou mayest, nevertheless, always sustain us by Thine hand until we shall at length be received into that blessed rest which has been procured for us by the blood of Thine only begotten Son. Amen.
