When I became a Christian, the first thing I learned was personalizing the Psalms. At the time, I did not know that praying the Psalms was something Christians had been doing for centuries. In fact, originally the Psalms were used as a Temple Hymnbook and accompanied by music. The Psalms actually span over a thousand years of history and written by over seven authors, David being the most well known.

Over the years, I have found a wonderful world in the Psalms. In good times and in bad, they have given me great confidence in this loving God we serve. As outlined here below, you can see that the various Psalms address our entire human experience.

Definitely the Psalms have the power to bring us closer to God, and I believe they are already apart of ‘who’ we are. They are filled with celebration, praise and worship. They give us joy, reassurance, contentment and trust.

I believe that God wants us to know Him. The Psalms gives us that opportunity to better understand His ways, and His tremendous love for us. A love so great that He sent His only son to lead us back to Himself.

"Praise the Lord, O My Soul!"
