There are times in life when I just don’t have the words to express what’s on my heart. Some of those times are when I’m praying. Can you relate?
When I don’t know what to pray, I turn to the Book of Psalms. The raw honesty and authentic emotion of the Psalms has made them relatable to every generation since they were written. This insightful book of the Bible is a powerful resource for believers, providing us with the words to pray when we just don’t know what to say.
Are you looking to connect with God on a deeper level through the Psalms?
I am excited to offer a free online course called Exploring the Book of Psalms. It offers valuable insight into the history, context, topics, background, and theology of these wonderful Hebrew poetic songs.
Discover the rich themes and heartfelt prayers which will help you give utterance to your own pleas and praises to the Lord. Whether you are a seasoned believer or new to the faith, this course is perfect for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of the Book of Psalms and its application to our lives.
The five-session course is completely online, with a new session emailed each week to be explored at your convenience. You can start enjoying the free online course today: https://www.luthersem.edu/resources/psalms-course/.
God has given us the treasure trove of the Psalms to help us express our hearts when our own words fail us. Let’s do all we can to become more familiar with this beautiful book of Scripture.
