Your prayers will be enriched and you will acquire a richer revelation of the God who invites you into a lifelong conversation.

• Includes 10 lessons, background information on Psalms, resource recommendations, and a “How to Use This Study" section



My Review:  The book of Psalms in the Old Testament has long been a favorite book of mine.  I love to read it when I need encouragement, an "uplifting" in my spirit or words of wisdom for a friend in despair.  
I was excited to review this study guide in the Life Change Series:  A life-changing encounter with God's Word from the book of PSALMS.  The book begins with a short chapter on how to use this study.  Then there are ten lessons in which you are given scriptures in Psalms to study.  There is a place to write your thoughts after given questions in the book.  This study guide is great for personal use but can also be used in a small group study.  After each lesson small group questions are given for discussion.
I found this study to be a nice study for understanding the Psalms.  It is not a study for each chapter in Psalms.  In fact, the first lesson begins with Psalms 19:1-6:  Prayers of Worship and Praise, then proceeds to take you through the whole 19th chapter.  
Lesson 2 is a mixture of verses from Psalms and John:  Prayers of Confessions and Acknowledgement.  
Lesson 3 is a study of Prayers of Intercession and Supplication, A study of Psalm 5:1-3, Psalm 21: 1-2, Psalm 91: 14-16 and Psalm 102:16-17.
Lesson 4 is a study of Prayers of Protection and Deliverance {I enjoyed this lesson immensely!}, Psalm 28:1-2, Psalm 3:1-4, Psalm 18:1-3Psalm 31:1-3 and Psalm 46:1-3 are used in this study.
Lesson 5 studies Prayers of Vindication and Forgiveness.  Psalm 73:1-11, Psalm 73:12-15, Psalm 73:16-20and Psalm 73:21-28 are used in this study.
Lesson 6 is Prayers of Renewal and Restoration using Psalm 23:1-3, Psalm 23:4, Psalm 23:5 and Psalm 23:6,
Lesson 7 is a great study on Prayer:  Looking to the Past, Planning for the Future.  Psalm 90:1-6, Psalm 90:7-9, Psalm 10-12, and Psalm 90:13-17 are the scriptures used in this study.
Lesson 8 is the study of Prayer the Apparent Silence of God.  Psalm 10:1-2, 17-18; Psalm 13:1-6;Psalm 22:1-2and Psalm 50:3-5 are studied in this lesson.
Lesson 9 Prayer and Waiting on the Lord.  Psalm 27:13-14, Psalm 40:1-3, Psalm 37:3-7, and Psalm 20-22 are studied in this lesson.
Lesson 10 is a study of Prayers of Reward and Thanksgiving. Psalm 37:3-5, Psalm 58:11, Psalm 100:5, and Psalm 107:8-9 are linked together in this study.
At the ending of the book there is a list of commentaries on Psalms, concordances, dictionaries, map, Bible atlases and so much more that can enhance your study.  This is a small book loaded with a wealth of information on the book of Psalms!  A 5 star study guide for those who want to study parts of Psalms!

  1. I like the idea that it doesn't cover all the Psalms...I will be studying the Psalms (some) this year with CBS, but I'd really like this book, esp lesson 9.

  8. Our lady's group is looking for a new topic for our Bible study. The book of Psalms is one of the topics suggested. This book sounds like what we are looking for.
