Praying The Psalms
How about making some time in the month of June this year to strengthen your prayer life?
So many of us struggle with prayer, and we look for guidance in many places, but in the center of our Bibles we have a tremendous resource: The Psalms. This was the prayer book of Israel, as it was also for Jesus. For generations, Christians have prayed and sung the Psalms. We may not personally feel everything expressed in the Psalms, and sometimes we can even be challenged by what we find there, but there is no better source of reflection on prayer available to the church.
One month in Psalms can change your life!
Daily Readings June 1 – 30
Daily readings will be emailed each morning.
Set aside 10-15 minutes in the morning, noon and evening to read through the Psalms for the day – you can do one, two or three, whatever works for you!
