Chapter Summary

Without attempting to adjudicate the larger historical debate, this chapter offers an overview of the way that one lay reformer in the first generation of the Reformation, shaped prayer life, especially for the public. Following her own cry of sorrow, the longest part of this prayer focuses on how Schutz Zell honored God's name and preached God's Word, with an exhortation to his people to continue that faith in the perilous times ahead. Zell concludes by reciting one verse of a hymn from the book she had earlier (re)published, and the last words of the recorded sermon are a very brief personal prayer. In addition to the first long Ps 51, the book includes short paraphrases of Ps 130 and Ps 51.
