Description: The Psalms are a rich treasury of praises, confessions, laments, and celebrations that can become strong foundations for prayer. In The Psalms for Prayer, T. M. Moore teaches believers how to tap those resources and add a new dimension of effectiveness and delight to their daily prayer life. He clearly explains six simple methods for praying the Psalms: verbatim, paraphrase, prayer over a psalm, responsive, guided, or a combination. Other practical features of The Psalms for Prayer include: complete NKJV text of the Psalms; index of topics for prayer found in the Psalms; devotional introductions to each Psalm; three optional schedules for praying through the Psalms; explanations of each type of Psalm; suggested prayer methods for each Psalm. Any person of faith interested in developing the spiritual discipline of prayer will find this book an excellent, easy-to-use guide. The book will also appeal to readers who are seeking a way to enhance their devotional life and who desire greater consistency and power in their prayers.
