Item description for Praying with the Psalms: A Year of Daily Prayers and Reflections on the Words of David by Eugene H. Peterson...

For the times when prayer doesn't come easily, here is a devotional prayer book focusing on the Psalms, the most sensitive and honest words written about daily stress and daily blessing. Peterson provides vivid insights into each chosen psalm, followed by a prayer.

Publishers Description
Prayer is both our most human action and our most human language. But, as with any other language, we may find ourselves clumsy and undisciplined in our attempts at it. Praying with the Psalms can help Christians become fluent in the language of prayer, encouraging us to pray even when we don't feel like it, and to learn prayers that are both honest and right. Based on the life and words of David, the Psalms provide insightful reflections on depression, anger, frustration, fear, and insecurity, as well as joy exhilaration, triumph, and gladness. Praying with the Psalms offers daily readings to guide us in expressing to God the wide range of human emotions. Through this enriched communication with God, we are led to a deeper understanding--and a truer following--of his will.

Reviews - What do customers think about Praying with the Psalms: A Year of Daily Prayers and Reflections on the Words of David?

Praying with the Psalms  Oct 3, 2005
If you're familiar with "The Message" by Eugene Peterson, you will enjoy this daily devotional. I love what he says in his introduction, "We are most ourselves when we pray" and "When that deep, deep center of our lives is exposed -- our core humanity, which biblical writers so vigorously designate as "heart" -- we unthinkingly revert to our first language: we pray."

What I like about this book is it is "little", each day's devotiional is only 1 or 2 versus from a Psalm, but Peterson's short insightful paragraph and prayer are clear, consise, helping to expose, through a Psalm, what is in your heart and mind and bringing you back to where you need to be -- In His Presence.
An Excellent Daily Devotional  Nov 10, 1998
Praying with the Psalms is an excellent way to start the day! Eugene Peterson addresses the major issues of life and our relationship to the everfaithful and loving God through thought-provoking meditations and heartfelt prayers. This is a book I would recommend to anyone who would like to get to know God better but has trouble with the discipline of daily Bible reading. The daily readings don't take long, yet within one year all of the 150 Psalms are covered. Throughout the generations the Psalms have always been considered a place where one is able to clearly see the heart of God. Praying with the Psalms helps us in this endeavor. It is also a good book to give as a gift to a friend or a loved one.
