No, this is exactly what Alford is disputing. He is replying to some
other 19th century (?) scholars who were attempting to read this
prayer as it were address to QEOS PATHR. I guess you need to have
Alford on hand and be accustom to reading him. I don't see any
ambiguity in the quoted paragraph of the original post but I have
been reading Alford for decades.
