What the Psalms Teach Us About Prayer


The Psalms are a profound collection of prayers and praise that hold a special place in the worshiping life of the church. In today’s Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Ben Wayman shares how exactly the Psalms can teach us to pray.

Get Ben’s book, Make the Words Your Own: An Early Christian Guide to the Psalms (Paraclete Press, 2014).

The Psalms have been sung, prayed, read, cherished, and memorized by the people of God for thousands of years. It is no mistake that God put, right at the heart of the Bible, an inspired prayer and worship book. The Psalms were given to us as a means of grace. In other words, each of the psalms represents a bridge or conduit through which the grace of God can be conveyed into our lives. This beautiful hardback book is a collection of thoughts on each of the psalms by Timothy and Julie Tennent. Get your copy from our store here.
