Worship can seem like a daunting task. That's why God gave us the Psalms. Written over a span of centuries, this collection of hymns and petitions covers a variety of settings and perspectives. Learn from David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, and the sons of Korah. Some of these psalms are defiant, while others are reverent. Some are meant to be sung, while others are a framework for prayer. Some are deeply personal, and others are written as if the whole world is to use them. Yet all serve the purpose of expressing our hearts to God. Don't just read the psalms, but pray them along with the authors who wrote them to experience their energy, appreciate their honesty, and enjoy their creativity.
