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:

May 7 Psalm 23
May 14 Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16
May 21 Psalm 66:8-20
May 28 Psalm 68:1-10, 32-35
