Item description for Prayers Before an Awesome God: The Psalms for Teenagers by David Haas...
Overview In Prayers Before an Awesome God: The Psalms for Teenagers, David Haas brings the Psalms to life. Using language that teens can understand and identify with, Haas not only helps young people find meaning in the Psalms but shows them how to incorporate the Psalms into their everyday lives. As a resource for personal prayer, the Psalms give us ways to express joy and sadness, excitement and loneliness, peace and rage. These Psalms can also be used for any occasion that calls for prayer in a group setting--a gathering, a youth ministry function, a prayer service, a retreat, a class. A special needs index, a liturgical index, and a ritual and sacrament index assist in locating specific prayers to match your needs.

Not just for teenagers! Dec 11, 2004
This book is truly awesome! As a religion teacher for teens, I have used it. But, I have also used it for groups of adults as a prayer and had great feedback. In fact, one adult borrowed my book and used it to pray each morning with her 8 year old! The prayers/psalms are written to speak to all ages.
Good for Teen Groups Sep 30, 2002
This book has been used successfully with a group of 14-15 year old teens. They wanted a study they could discuss on their own. This is a pull-out public school study done in homes. It has met the need well.
Psalms Alive!!! Helps teens talk with God in their words. Jul 28, 1999
A wonderful interpretation of the age-old Psalms in words with which teens will feel comfortable. Great way for teens to talk to God through every emotion and up and down of their life and especially when they don't know quite how to do it. Makes the Psalms relevant for them today!
