PSALM-O-RAMA 2017

Poetry. Praise. Passion. Power. Prayer. It’s all there in the Psalms.

It’s PSALM-O-RAMA  2017 here on GUWG where all week we’ll be taking a deeeeep dive into the Book of Psalms.

Let’s start right at the beginning. Here’s a selection from Psalm 1. Memorize it. Marinate in it. Meditate on it.

OT Week: ♥

We continue OLD TESTAMENT WEEK here on GUWG with a prayer from David, whom God called a “man after my own heart.” Pray through each precious word with all YOUR heart.

I will exalt you, Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down into the pit.

Lift

Here’s a little lift for anyone out there who’s feeling down:

To you, O Lord,
I lift up my soul;
in you I trust, O my God.

Show me your ways, O Lord,
teach me your paths;
guide me in your truth
and teach me,
for you are my God and Savior,
and my hope is in you
all day long.

Wednesday Worship

Studies show that people are more stressed and depressed on Wednesday than on any other day of the week. Here’s a lovely little Psalm to help lift your . Pray through it at least 834 times today.

I will give thanks to you, Lord,
with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

God’s Love Lasts a Loooooong Time

If you’re ever feeling down or wondering whether God really loves you, here’s an awesome little Psalm to pray through.

See if you can spot the central theme. (Hint: It’s repeated a few times for people with brains like mine that tend to wander a bit.)

Give thanks to the LORD,
for he is good.
His love endures forever.

But a Breath

Show me, O Lord,
my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days
a mere handbreath;
the span of my years
is nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
even those who seem secure.

A Thousand Questions

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re looking at deeeeep, thought-provoking ?s posed by the Bible.

Today’s questions are from the Psalms …

Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? (Psalm 10:1)
