This book contains the first 41 Psalms from the Bible, with each being followed by a contemporary prayer written by Ms. Ell. I did enjoy re-reading the Psalms, and Ms. Ell's prayers were interesting. My only reservation though was that many of the contemporary prayers did not match my own thoughts. The new prayers seem to be ve ...more

I'm not sure how to review a book in this format, so I will just say what comes to mind. I have read one other book of prayers based on Scripture, which I did not care for, though it was a writer I liked.
The concept of praying according to Scripture is a fabulous one. I've struggled with how to accomplish this on my own. Lynnda, you have done a fabulous job of doing so in your b ...more
I recently received a copy of this book by the author herself. I must say, I am surprised at how easily she has translated the Psalms into prayers. It is a very easy read which for me would not usually be the case.
When the book first arrived I thought to myself that I might be in over my head. I am 21 years old and my whole life I have had an Atheist point of view. My morals still have always been parallel to most of those set forth in the bible, but I never could un ...more

The Psalms of David were written roughly 3,000 years ago and Lynnda Ell has done a wonderful job in taking the first book of Psalms, the first 41 Psalms, and modernizing the words of David into prayers that make sense in today’s world. Although some of the prayers can be a little more personal in nature to Lynnda’s circumstances than the reader, the overall meanings are solid and can assist anyone in using a specific psalm for a personal prayer. I enjoyed how each psalms was broken out by verse ...more
This book is amazing in its own way is all I can say.It contains simple prayers written in simple words but if you actually read it carefully you will see the meaning it contains.All prayers are connected to us in one way or the ot ...more
Lynnda Ell has provided psalms from the Bible, and on the opposing page has written her interpretation of those psalms. Throughout the book, Ell has left places for one to write in their own understanding of the psalm.
I enjoyed reading and contemplating “Changing Me, Change the World”. By reading one every day or two, I was able to absorb and get insi ...more

This book can be used as a supplement for your daily devotions or when the need arises, such as prayers of praise, repentance, thanksgiving, and prayers for the sick.
I would encourage Lynnda Ell to continue this important devotional series for the Psalms and also to consi ...more
Thank you so much Mrs. Lynnda Ell, for writing such a wonderful
book I will treasure it. ...more
I will be using this book as a part of my ministry that reaches mature Christians, 'Baby Christians", "Seekers", and the lost. It is that well written, that all who come to "the well" may be served.
NOW, I'm excited!
This book is laid out so that each of the forty-one Psalms can be studied and meditated upon, and related to current times; the author provides room for personal notes, as well. This book would be wonderful for Bible study.
This book is a wonderful addition to my daily devotions. I like it so well that I have obtained copies for the members of my prayer group, and copies for my daughters as well.
Although I have marked this book as "read", it is a book that I continue to read and refer to. What a valuable resource!
Thank you to Author Lynnda Ell and Goodreads!
