Have you ever prayed Psalms?

The combination of prayer and this beautiful book of the Bible creates a powerful resource to face those tumultuous trials we battle. It’s also helpful when we search but can’t find the words to pray, feel overwhelmed by discouragement, or face a chest-tightening battle with fear.

Pray Psalms during your faith journey this year, my friend. Keep eyes on Jesus and stand strong with a new Christian podcast too! (There’s more about it later in the post.) Both are ready-tools for the hungry Christian. Let’s go!

How Do You Use Psalms in Prayer?

The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Each of these 150 created a melody for life. Call them champions of poetic assurance and encouragement for generations–including folks like you and me.

Some are written as prayers or grab a verse or passage and offer them as well. Speak them “as is.” Insert your name or the names of others. Offer them silently or out loud. It’s easy to use Psalms in prayer in a multitude of ways.

Below are three useful verses for a solid start.

  • Psalm 3:7
  • Psalm 5:1-3
  • Psalm 17:1-3

  1. I love this! Praying the Word back to God is always effective and for whatever reason it has a way of bringing rest to our own souls. Great post! ❤️

  2. I have been reading a Psalm a day since January 1 and I have found them to be so comforting. I especially like Psalms 23, 25, and 27 so far. This is such a wonderful way to be close to our God.

    Thank you.
