Psalms: ACTS of Worship – Readings and Resources
This summer, we invite you to spend fifteen minutes or more a day with God in scripture, prayer, and solitude. Use this guide for your daily reading and enrich your time with recommended music.
Receive these daily readings as a gift with the understanding that the Biblical stories all point to Jesus, our first love.
To enhance your daily time:
• DOWNLOAD the SBPC Mobile App and turn notifications on to receive the daily readings.
• LISTEN to a song from the playlist to help you slow down and enter into this time.
• ENTER into the passage by imagining yourself in the scene. What do you feel? What are you learning about Jesus? What are you learning about yourself from Jesus?
• JOURNAL your thoughts and prayers..
