Reformed Covenanter

Cancelled Commissioner
It well becomes sinful dust and ashes, in addresses to God, to come with a blush in the countenance, and tears in the eye, and confession in the mouth. … Some say they cannot pray: O can ye not confess what you are, have done, and daily are doing? How can ye want matter of prayer, while ye have so many sins to confess?

Thomas Boston, Discourses on Prayer (1727) in The Whole Works of the Late Reverend Thomas Boston of Ettrick, ed. Samuel McMillan (12 vols, Aberdeen: George and Robert King, 1852), 11: 10.
