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 1/td> Psalm 25:1-9
October 8 Psalm 80:7-15
October 15 Psalm 23
October 22 Psalm 96:1-9, (10-13)
October 29 Psalm 1
