But we also experience the peace and protection of our wonderful Creator whose goodness is not dependent on our situation. Depression and anxiety may threaten to steal our hope and joy, but the psalms are full of God’s unchanging love and faithfulness. As we offer our prayers and praise to God, we can also choose to believe that each day will be filled with his perfect promises. Find the hope, joy, and peace that is abundant in God as you reflect on these devotional entries, psalms, and prayers. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.

What is needed is not ingenious exegetical rationalization of ancient texts, but the kind of transformation into a work of piety and art that is provided here.Addressed are the needs of a world seeking to counter individual and societal injustices by a global peace born of personal peace through prayer and practice. In short, here is the Book of Psalms recast in the light of the continuing revelation and evolution of the authentic religious spirit of the scriptures.

Psalm Prayers is a devotional companion to the Psalms and a practical resource for creating prayers for public worship. It is particularly helpful for those who lead services of Evensong from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, where the reading of the psalms and extemporary prayer are integral parts of the service. Stephen Cherry introduces each of the 150 Psalms and lays out its central theme before offering a prayer in response. Crafted with care in a traditional style that complements the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, these prayers are nevertheless fresh and immediate, vividly reflecting the concerns and pressures of today’s world. These prayers have been developed and used over many years’ experience in parish and cathedral ministry, and latterly in King’s College, Cambridge, and are suitable for both choral evensong in cathedrals and college chapels or simple, spoken services in local churches.

In this thoroughly revised edition of a classic in spirituality, Walter Brueggemann guides the reader into a thoughtful and moving encounter with the Psalms. This new edition includes a revised text, new notes, and new bibliography. The movement and meeting of God with us is indeed a speech-event in which new humanness is evoked among us. Being attentive to language means cultivating the candid imagination to bring our own experience to the Psalms and permitting it to be disciplined by the speech of the Psalms. And, conversely, it means letting the Psalms address us and having that language reshape our sensitivities and fill our minds with new pictures and images that may redirect our lives. --from Chapter 3

Praying the Psalms Changes Things is the fourth book in a very popular series by Lloyd Hildebrand that involves praying the Scriptures. The Bible says, And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us. and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. This spiritual confidence comes from praying God's Word, and the Psalms are particularly powerful sources of prayer for every believer. The Book of Psalms is known as the Bible's prayer book, and so many of the Psalms are prayers that we can personalize for ourselves. Dietrich Bonhoeffer called the Psalms, ...a great school of prayer..., and Praying the Psalms Changes Things is a very helpful textbook in that important school. As you read and pray, God will reveal His will to you and you will be changed. How does praying the Psalms change things? It helps you to know the truth about the situations and circumstances of your life. It will build your faith and give you a glimpse of what God wants for you. As a result, you will grow spiritually, your perspective on things will change, and you will see things changing around you. The Author writes, The Psalms reveal God's heart to us. Filled with promises from Him, the 15 chapters in the Book of Psalms tell us what He wants for us and how to obtain His blessings in our lives. As you read and pray the Psalms, you will see how much Godloves you.

They call on God for revenge on their enemies and mercy for themselves. Lyn Fraser, following the lead of Old Testament theologian Walter Brueggemann, shows how to integrate these psalms of disorientation in Sunday morning worship, pastoral care, and any situation of extreme need.

The psalms made intimate and tangible Life is often so busy and chaotic that even when we do find time to pray, our minds cannot settle and our thoughts drift to the stresses and concerns that pull our attention elsewhere. With the use of beads, however, our bodies are incorporated into the act of praying, allowing us to remain present with God in a state of peaceful meditation. Praying the Psalms with Beads guides the reader in a daily devotional habit that distills the entire book of Psalms into 182 five-minute prayers, allowing one to go through this whole cycle twice a year, gaining deeper familiarity with the psalms each time. By virtue of this repetition, the psalmists’ praises, laments, and supplications become something deeply felt instead of only distantly understood. Nan Lewis Doerr’s introduction includes an overview and guide to using prayer beads, making this an accessible book for anyone who longs for deeper peace and spiritual focus in their lives.

Join with Yohanna Katanacho, a Palestinian Israeli Christian, in praying through the Psalms. After completing his PhD on the book of Psalms, Yohanna Katanacho felt led to pray every psalm in the context of the Middle East. These prayers transformed him. They helped him expand his understanding of Psalms as he prayed out his theology. They also enabled him to express all of his frustrations, hopes, joys, and many other emotions. His feelings were sanctified in the presence of the Lord and this experience created a healthy theology of tears in the midst of oppressive realities. Lastly, these prayers strengthened him to face the harsh realities of the Middle East from a biblical perspective. This collection of 150 beautiful and unique prayers, inspired by each of the Psalms and birthed in the same land as Jesus, will help you grow in under- standing the struggles of Christians in the Middle East, and deepen your love for God.

Praying The Psalms In Christ

Written centuries before Christ, the Psalms of the Hebrew Bible have been prayed by Christians since the founding of the Church. The early church fathers expounded the psalms in the light of the mystery of Christ, his death and resurrection, and his saving redemption. In this book, a Benedictine monk examines the Christian praying of the Psalms, taking into account modern and contemporary research on the Psalms. Working from the Hebrew text, Fr. Laurence Kriegshauser offers a verse-by-verse commentary on each of the one hundred and fifty psalms, highlighting poetic features such as imagery, rhythm, structure, and vocabulary, as well as theological and spiritual dimensions and the relation of psalms to each other in the smaller collections that make up the whole. The book attempts to integrate modern scholarship on the Psalms with the act of prayer and help Christians pray the psalms with greater understanding of their Christological meaning. The book contains an introduction, a glossary of terms, an index of topics, a table of English renderings of selected Hebrew words, and an index of biblical citations. Praying the Psalms in Christ will be welcomed by students of theology and liturgy, by priests, religious, and laypeople who pray the Liturgy of the Hours, and by all Christians who seek to pray the Psalms with greater profit and fervor. “It is no easy task to combine devotion with scholarship. From the introduction onwards this book breathes a prayerfulness that lifts the heart to God. With contemporary linguistic, literary, and theological scholarship, it joins the rich tradition of the Church expressed over the centuries in the writings of the Fathers. Each psalm is given a striking image as a sort of 'logo' and then discussed for itself. A special feature of the book is the appreciation that the prayer of the psalms in Christ is interwoven, threads of one bringing richness to another.” —Dom Henry Wansbrough, Master Emeritus of St. Benet's Hall, Oxford “In Praying the Psalms in Christ, Fr. Kriegshauser has given us a form of reading the psalms that runs very close in intention to that ancient practice of lectio divina where the text of the bible is read prayerfully as a form of contemplative prayer. His prayerful study is made all the more rich by the abundant cross references to other places in the bible, both Old and New Testaments, that add richness to the text. The result is an informative and spiritually nourishing companion to reading the psalms.” —Lawrence S. Cunningham, University of Notre Dame "Clear, accessible, and rooted in the tradition, Praying the Psalms in Christ guides us into the ancient prayers of Israel and the Church. The result is a fresh contribution to the great Christian tradition of spiritual commentary.” —Russell R. Reno, Creighton University

The Book of Psalms is powerful, and it works; however, for some odd reason, it is underused or underestimated! As an Oracle of God, I have found that to open up the floodgates of The Guarded Psalms of Prayer, we must learn how to pray for it effectively. When we learn how to use the Book of Psalms in conjunction with our daily prayers, it invokes the Power of the Holy Spirit to release the Wisdom of our past, present, and future. For everyone will have this cycle that will incorporate seed, time, and harvest; sunrise, and sunset; morning, afternoon and evening; spring, summer, fall, and winter; and so on. However, in the midst of the Cycles of Mother Nature, we have the Cycles of Life! And, this is where Wisdom is designed to make all things work together for our good if we believe in the power that is hidden within the Book of Psalms. Our daily walk is indeed a journey, and it is through this journey that we determine our end-result. Of course, I believe in destiny, but our destiny is depending upon the choices that we make, or the lack thereof. Therefore, if we have a desire to overcome, rebound, and triumph over the trials that we are destined to have-that would indeed make our lives ensue a stream of peace that is unknown to the natural man unless the Wisdom of the Holy Spirit is involved. This powerful tool helps us to lean not to our own understanding; therefore, developing a faith that will allow blessings to follow us, along with a supernatural spiritual covering that will put our enemies at bay. The Book of Psalms allows us to take biblical prayers and make them our own based on the situation, circumstance, or event that's present in our lives. It also helps us to get on one accord with God, especially when we don't know what to pray for, or how to pray. I have found that some people use the Psalms only when needed; but, in order to receive the best results, we should recite a Psalm every day, especially for giving thanks, or to exercise gratefulness. Although we do not need a degree to have an effective prayer, all we need is the right tools to enable favor and grace to fall upon our prayers. I have found in my Walk with God that using proper protocol, proper technique, along with a little eloquence goes a long way. I am not saying go overboard when praying; all I am saying is to exercise some Biblical Principles, humility, and reverence when praying-God will open up the windows of Heaven, where we will not have room enough to store our blessings, GUARANTEED! Now, with that being said, I introduce to you, The Guarded Psalms of Prayer.
