ZUIDDAM, Benno A.. Godsspraak als drijfveer, standaard en model voor gebed bij Clemens van Rome aan de Corinthieërs. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 2305-0853.

Clement of Rome's letter to the Corinthians shows an interdependence of holy Scripture and prayer. In the context of this early Christian epistle, Divine revelation, primarily through Scripture, takes on an initiatory role for prayer. Clement considers the Scriptures as oracles of God in terms of their contents and authority. In his prayer-response to Scripture, both for contents and words, Clement shows himself inspired by holy Scripture. Consequently, Clement's prayer is aimed at conformity of human behaviour to what he considers God's revealed standards. As to the format of prayer in Clement to the Corinthians, words and expressions are largely borrowed from the sacred Scriptures. The agenda and themes of prayer in this letter are set by holy Writ as well, reinforcing the role of Scripture as initiator, standard and prototype for prayer, as the early church father reaches out to God.
