Yet have thou respect to the prayer of thy servant, and to his
supplication, O Lord my God
Meaning himself, who, though a king acknowledged himself, and esteemed it an honour to be the servant of the Lord, and who was also an humble suppliant of his, and desired his prayers and supplications might be attended to:
to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer which thy servant prayeth
before thee this day;
the particulars of which follow.
