Praying The Psalms (The Psalter )

Posted by David Neff, OblSB on

Reading 150 Psalms every month may be very difficult, if not impossible, for many persons, but that is just one of many options - all options are good for the soul.

Discover those Psalms you find helpful in your daily journey. Embrace them, take ownership of them - every day.

Read (Lectio)

Reflect (Meditatio)

  • How do the words “connect” with your life today?

 Pray (Oratio)

  • Allow the passage you have read to lead you into a prayer response.

 Rest (Contemplation)

  • Rest quietly in God’s presence and love.
  • Give yourself time to be still before you re-enter your daily life
  • Be thankful. God is present.
