Welcome to Week 17 of Praying through the Psalms.
The leaders in the Oklahoma annual conference have asked all members to read and pray through the book of Psalms. Why the Psalms? The Psalms are a therapeutic hymnal. A range of emotions are expressed in the sometime short, other times lengthy worshipful pieces of poetry and prose. The Psalms comprised the worship book for the Jewish tradition. What do these Psalms say to us today? Allow the Holy Spirit to move within your heart and speak to you anew as you reflect on these passages.
“The more deeply we grow into the psalms and the more often we pray them as our own, the more simple and rich will our prayer become.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
