PSALMS, VOLUME ONE
Wouldn’t it be helpful if we had a God-approved model of real prayers of real people talking to God about the whole range of human experience? We do! It has been collected for all time in the book of Psalms. Psalms has everything from desperate cries of agony to glorious shouts of praise. It covers a range from intimate moments of personal repentance to national celebrations of kingly coronation.
For three thousand years God’s people have read, sung, and prayed the heights and depths of this incredible 150-chapter collection. This summer, at Grace Covenant, we will join the saints and encounter God through the prayers of the Psalms. As we encounter people who have encountered God, we will dip our ladle into the cool water at the bottom of a faithful well and drink in these inspired prayers. Learning to pray with the saints will help us find our own voice to reach out to God with fresh energy and hope.
