Psalms Daily Readings and Additional Resources
Our desire is to grow closer to Jesus. One way to do this is to use the Psalms as a soundtrack for our lives. The church and God’s people have done this for 4000 years by meditating, hearing, memorizing, and sharing the songs that rang through Jesus’ head and heart.
This summer, we invite you to continue (or begin) personal spiritual practices by spending fifteen minutes a day with God in scripture, prayer, and solitude. Use this guide for your daily reading and enrich your time with recommended music and books.
