A psalm is a prayer or poem put to music as a spiritual song or hymn. The sacred collection of psalms in the Old Testament is God’s playlist of greatest hits. The first hymnal or songbook the Early Church ever used was the book of Psalms.
No book in the Bible is more beloved than Psalms. When read with both the head and heart, Psalms helps us connect with the passion of God and our own human emotions.
For example, when you do not know how to pray or express yourself to God, reach for a fitting psalm and pray it back to the Lord. Psalms is truly a rest stop on the ultimate road trip through the Bible and a place to fuel up your soul.
