Praying the Psalms with Jesus: Introduction and Overview
When you first begin praying your way through the Psalms, you might feel as if you’re a spiritual pilgrim traveling through a strange yet sacred land. Start traveling and it doesn’t take long to realize that this prayerbook (and hymnal) given to the Church by God Himself is different literary territory than the rest of the Scriptures.Each Psalm is filled with new sights with stunning and striking images, different sounding words and phrases, and picture promises of Messiah. In the prayers and hymns, emotions are given full voice. Sighs, laments, rants, rage against enemies, doubts, questions, thanksgiving, praise and “hallelujahs” all live together in a sacred tension.Traveling this road alone can be disorienting. What we need on this journey through the Psalms is a spiritual guide, a native of the land, ONE who has the spiritual accent of the territory. We need ONE who has lived and walked and prayed the Psalms before us and FOR us. We need ONE who now desires to pray them with us. That ONE is our Brother, the Lord Jesus, our Great High Priest.And so, we pray the Psalms with Jesus.If you have already signed up for the “Friends and Daggers” videos, you are automatically enrolled in the new series.
