A special look at the Psalms Apr 13, 2008
The Prayers of David is a readable book that uses the Psalms as a window into David's relationship with God. The authors introduce each section with one of David's Psalms. The chapters each are a more detailed exploration of the many different ways in which God related to David, and by extension to us. The chapter headings begin with The Lord is my Shepherd (Psalm 23) through God as King (Psalm 8), Salvation (Psalm 3), Friend (Psalm 16), Confidence (Psalm 62 and 27), Refuge (Psalm 52 and 31), Provider (Psalm 103), Reward (Psalm 17), Passion (Psalm 62), and Forgiveness (Psalm 51). They finish with David's Commitment and David's prayers for his descendants.
While the Psalms are the mainstay of this book, the whole breadth of Scripture is brought to bear on how God wishes to relate to us and make our lives more abundant. The narratives that introduce each chapter read true to the character of David, and many are taken from Scripture. These glimpses into the life of David allow the authors to make important points about our life with God without becoming preachy. Each well-written and helpful chapter can be read in a few minutes and closes with a prayer that helps personalize David's experience, and bring it into our own lives.
The Prayers of David is a remarkably readable book that offers a vivid window into the Psalms and the mind of the only person in Scripture to be described as "A person after God's Own Heart."
Armchair Interviews says: A wonderful look at the Psalms for our daily life.
