Praying the Psalms

The Psalms are regarded as the hymnal of the ancient Hebrew people and the "prayer book" of Jesus.  Today they provide for us a rich resource for spiritual formation.  As a spiritual discipline, some have found it meaningful to read the same Psalm (or portion of a Psalm) for each day for a week, meditating on the same text each day over the seven days.  The following assigned lectionary readings from the Psalms cover the next few weeks:

December 5 Luke 1:68-79
December 12 Isaiah 12:2-6
December 19 Luke 1:46b-55
December 26 Psalm 148
