A Formatio book. Weariness. Wonder. Joy. Longing. Anger.These are the feelings of the Psalms: honest expressions of pain and joy penned by real people in the midst of real life circumstances. Though they were written centuries ago, the Psalms still resonate deeply with us today, giving voice to our thoughts and longings:"Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD." (Psalm 130: ...more

Going through 10 various Psalms this book is like being invited into someone else's personal time with the Lord, and thereby growing in your own way of connecting with God through Sire's example. Each Psalm is given great background into its context and while the reader is guided along in prayer there is adequate freedom to pray from one's own heart. I definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to grow in praying Scripture or just looking to grow in their personal quiet times with the Lord ...more

This is one of those books that you hate to see come to an end. I enjoyed how he worked with 10 Psalms, including some of my favorites. I enjoy reading the Psalms and he gave me new insights. The good news is I see he has another book - Praying the Psalms of Jesus, or something like that.
I spent a year going through this book (one chapter each month) and really appreciated how Sire was willing to tackle "difficult" Psalms like Psalm 137.
outstanding--used this for personal devotions several years ago & used a few chapters to good effect in a small group, college ministry setting.
