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 3 Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19
December 10 Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13
December 17 Psalm 126
December 24 Psalm 98
December 31 Psalm 148
