Engaging the Psalms: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer
From struggle to jubilation, the Psalms reveal the human experience. They exhibit a broad, stunning range of human emotion from God's creation and serve as a summary of the entire Bible. The Psalms also serve as a wonderful tool for devotion and reflection. Engaging the Psalms: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer guides you through all 150 Psalms to find quiet devotional time within each line of scripture.
Using a threefold approach to devotional time, known as the three R's, you can deepen your understanding of the Psalms. The three R's are: Request the Spirit's help in prayer, Read and repeat the Word, Return to the Lord in prayer. Using these three guides you can gain the most out of your devotional time in the Word with fill in the blank prayer portions and insightful questions to help you think about each individual line.

"Why use the Book of Psalms, and why should you start now? It is critical that you begin by understanding that the Psalms (or sacred songs) are God's Word and God's Word gives life. In discovering, and rediscovering, the richness that is the Book of Psalms, God will enrich your daily discipleship." –from the Introduction
