"I hope that as you start praying the Psalms, you will feel His presence in all the things that you do and you will feel His guidance through both storms and long periods of waiting. I hope that you will see God as your life and breath instead of as your religion."
The Psalms are among the most beautiful poems ever written, but sometimes they feel very far from us and our daily struggles and goals. In Psalms for Trials: Meditations on Praying the Psalms by Lindsey Tollefson, we see that the Psalms are not just pious words for the religious, but they are meant to be our prayers for every trial we face, just as they have been a comfort for generations of Christians before us, including King David and the Lord Jesus. The Psalms allow us to pour ourselves out in prayer to God and to receive the comfort that comes from the promises found in His Word.
This book includes forty-four bite-sized reflections on the Psalms, each ending with concrete recommendations on how to use the Psalms in your prayers and more importantly, how to live them out. After you have read this book, your prayers will never be the same again.
