Jacoj: Makes a lot of sense, really; there are so many of them, anyway. I don't go by the Anglican prayer book, but in it the Psalms are divided so that they can all be read/sung every month. Blessings.Psalms is one of my favorite books. Reading it at least once daily.
Hi Sura! my wife and I have been through the Psalms together more than once.I loooooove the psalms! My very very favorite is Psalm 139!! I think I have more favorite verses from the Psalms than actual full psalms lol. I'm currently re-reading that book now ^_^
unicorn21:hello everyone, the psalms have their own specialness don't they.
I will never forget when I was deathly ill, all I wanted was someone to read from psalms to me. It didn't matter what psalm it was, I just needed it to be spoken to me. It comforted me like nothing else.
Psalm 142 has always been a biggie to me all my life. Holds meaning for me personally. Just with struggles I have had.
Sparrow:One of my favorites is Psalm 139. I love it so much, I put most of it in a song I wrote. Since God knows each one of us so intimately, how can we not pray, "Father, Your will be done"?
Hi Sparrow:Another one of my favorites is Psalm 91. I love our heavenly Father's promise that because we love Him, He will answer us and rescue us when we're in trouble. This is just so wonderful to know! Puts a smile on my face for sure!
One of my songs, entitled simply "Psalm 91" starts out with:Hi Sparrow:
I think 'Shadow of the Almighty' was taken from Psalm 91 for the title of the first book by Elizabeth Elliot, widow of Jim Elliot.
Sparrow: Hey this is great! are you a songwriter? a singer, too?One of my songs, entitled simply "Psalm 91" starts out with:
He who dwells in the Secret Place
In the shelter of the most High
He will abide under
The Shadow of the Almighty
I've done a duet once in Church, but this was before I began writing songs. I have sung my own songs at an Assisted Living facility, however. I've never written anything but Christian songs. Thanks for the encouragement.Sparrow: Hey this is wonderful! So do you sing in churches? I guess if so you include other hymns and spiritual songs in your repertoire and not only Psalms.
