Praying the Psalms

  •   Sunday June 18, 2017 from 12:00 am - Sunday September 03, 2017 12:00 am

The Psalms are the prayer book, the song book, and the journal of the people of God. They are the God breathed prayers of people honestly expressing the full range of human emotion to God. And they are the prayers Jesus prayed on the cross. In our summer Bible study, we immerse ourselves in the Psalms as we learn to pray.

Sundays, 10am, June 18 - September 3
Greenman Elementary (729 W. Galena Blvd, Aurora)

Read the entire Psalter this summer by reading 3 Psalms a day, 5 days a week, for 10 weeks. Or read the Psalter each month by reading 5 Psalms a day for 30 days. Read them all at once or morning, noon, and night. Try memorizing the Psalms with an * next to them.
