Are the psalms a closed book to you?
Discovering Psalms as Prayer explores some of the problems we have with prayer and with the psalms.
A visit to a Christian Ashram in India showed the author how to make emotional sense of the psalms, using a pattern of prayer which has lasted him over 30 years.
Here you will find a simple way of using various psalms at key points of the day: morning, lunchtime, evening and night.
There are many different types of psalms: lament, trust, praise, history and wisdom. ‘Discovering Psalms’ gives a framework which relates to them all.
The framework for daily prayer at various times of the day can be found on Andy’s Bible Blog on bibleinbrief.org, downloaded for free and made up as two 4-page A5 leaflets.
Give it a try. It’s good!
