HIS-tory Part 14: Praying the Psalms Outside of Ourselves
Praying the Psalms Outside of Ourselves
All scripture is God's words to His people for His glory. The Psalms are unique in that they are at the same time both God's words and the prayers of men to God. One of the most widely read and widely under-utilized books of the Bible, the Psalms gives us a language for how to communicate with God. We can join with Christ in his prayer's to the Father, as well as commune with our brothers and sisters throughout the world when praying the Psalms. We pray not simply to express ourselves, but for God to teach us what we should desire, and how we should ask him for it.
3 Things to Remember When Praying the Psalms:
1. THE PSALMS TEACH US HOW TO INTERACT WITH GOD
2. JESUS IS THE TRUE AND BETTER PSALMIST
3. THE PSALMS ARE NOT ONLY FOR ME, BUT FOR US
