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:

July 3 Psalm 66:1-9
July 10 Psalm 25:1-10
July 17 Psalm 15
July 24 Psalm 138
July 31   Psalm 49:1-12
