Got plans this summer?  Maybe you’re planning some time away, or more family time, or maybe just planning to take it a little easy this summer.  Well, as a church, we want to spend this summer in the Psalms in hopes of devoting our hearts to God.  The book of Psalms is one of the most amazing books in the Bible.  They are this gift from God to us that help us express the deepest cries of our hearts.  Sometimes those cries are in agony like Psalm 13, “How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?”  Or Psalm 69, “Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck.” Other times our hearts cry out with shouts of praise like Psalm 98 that says, “Oh sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things!” Or Psalm 106, “Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”

This summer we will devote our hearts to God by spending time every day in the Psalms.  If you will engage with this plan, we will get through all 150 Psalms in 12 weeks and you will be amazed at God’s work in your heart.  Here’s the simple plan:

  • Sundays: We will preach one Psalm every Sunday.
  • Monday – Saturday: we will all read one Psalm in the morning, and one Psalm in the evening.

For your devotions, we suggest picking up one of our journals available at church.
You can do devotions individually, or with others in your family or group. Simply read a Psalm out loud once or twice, noticing what the Psalm tells you about God, about people, and about life. Then let what you read lead you to pray in 3 ways:

  • “God, You are…”
  • “God, I am…”
  • “God, Help me…”

Engaging with God in His Word like this consistently over time will help your heart grow devoted to God.

The preaching and reading schedule for the Psalms is listed below.  You can also pick up a bookmark with the schedule at church.
