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:

October 3 Psalm 8
October 10 Psalm 90:12-17
October 17 Psalm 91:9-16
October 24 Psalm 126
October 31   Psalm 119:1-8
