Resources to Guide Your Summer in the Psalms
We hope that your time spent studying the Psalms this summer will shape your prayer life for years to come. In the first sermon of the Summer in the Psalms series, we received a challenge to start and end our days praying a Psalm (while our phones stay asleep!). As the repetition of this practice forms a healthy habit, you'll set the tone for how you respond to whatever comes your way throughout the rest of your day.
Here are a few resources that you can purchase on Sunday to help take your Summer in the Psalms to the next step:
- Praying the Bible by Donald S. Whitney (Available Sunday for $10) - "When you pray, does it ever feel like you're just saying the same old things about the same old things? Simple, yet profound, Praying the Bible will prove invaluable as you seek to commune with your heavenly Father in prayer each and every day."
- Found: Psalm 23 by Sally Lloyd-Jones and Jago (Available Sunday for $10) - "With lyrical text from The Jesus Storybook Bible and new, engaging illustrations, Psalm 23 comes alive for young children like never before. Snuggle up with your little one as you both discover God's Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreakable, Always and Forever Love."
- Journals (Available Sunday for $5) - Grab a Moleskine with a Well logo to guide your prayer time this summer. Choose a Psalm, then journal your own prayer to God using the language of each verse. Or meditate on one verse of a Psalm that jumps out to you.
- The Treasury of David; Charles Spurgeon Bible Commentary (Available online) - Visit http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/treasury-of-david/ for Charles Spurgeon's helpful commentary on the Psalms.
- Psalms of Ascent Study Book | She Reads Truth (Available for purchase online) - Some of the women's 3D groups will go through this study over the summer. "The Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134) were sung by worshipers as they made the journey up to Jerusalem for the annual feasts. They are a series of songs to divide the journey, each one focusing on an essential aspect of the life of a child of God. In this 3-week reading plan, we’ll dig into these traveling songs with the help of short summary essays and thoughtful, reflective questions for each psalm."
