The prayers we say affect our spirituality – for the most part unconsciously. A powerful movement of spiritual renewal is taking place in the church today as Christians turn increasingly to the psalms for their personal prayer. Michel de Verteuil CSSp applies this ancient method of Bible reading to the psalms. We discover the psalms as a school of spirituality that invites us to pray with the imagination, integrating in our prayer all our passions and emotions, including anger, and allowing prayer to become an experience of wisdom and universal communion.
“If you want to deepen your prayer life using the Psalms, this small book is worth reading.”–Word.
