The problem with
much of our prayer life is we are focused too much on ourselves and less upon
the Lord. If all we ever do is pray in conformity with our hearts and never
counter to it, we will be tempted to make prayer something it was never intended;
some sort of magic formula (in Jesus name). Yet, prayer is much more than
petition, it’s intimacy. Prayer is much more than us speaking, it’s also
listening. Prayer is not so much about getting our heart expressed as it is
about having our heart aligned.
Over the next
several weeks, we invite you to join with us as we journal and pray through the
Book of Psalms. The process is simple; read through a psalm, writing and
praying as you work through each one. In the left column are psalms we will pray
through together. In the right column, several other psalms are listed.
Consider working through one psalm per day as you have time. If you miss a day,
no biggie, just start up again the next day.
