Resources for Praying the Psalms

This is going to be a fairly short post.  It’s mainly a set of links for ways to get started in praying the Psalms.  It’s a mishmash of books, websites and studies.  Here you go.

The Daily Prayer site (Morning, Evening and Night Prayer) at the Church of England’s website – I use this regularly.

The Psalter at the Book of Common Prayer online

The Daily Office from The Mission of St Clare

“Praying with the Church” by Scot McKnight

“The Divine Hours” by Phyllis Tickle

“Reflections on the Psalms” by C.S. Lewis

“In Constant Prayer” by Robert Benson

“Psalms: The Prayer Book of the Bible” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The best way to get started in my opinion is to pick a resource and go with it.  Over time this you will discover what works best for you.  The key to praying the Psalms is simply consistency.  Let the language seep deep into you being and the words themselves will began to change the way you pray and think.   Enjoy the adventure of Praying the Psalms.
