Dietrich Bonhoeffer presents the Psalms as the prayer of the Church of which Jesus Christ is Head, having their place alongside the ‘Our Father’, the prayer which Jesus taught. Bonhoeffer considers who it is who prays in the Psalms, as well as various themes to be found within them, such as creation and the history of salvation, life and suffering. The Psalms provide words with which we can address God and in which we can hear God speaking to us.

Written centuries before Christ, the Psalms of the Hebrew Bible have been prayed by Christians since the founding of the Church. The early church fathers expounded the psalms in the light of the mystery of Christ, his death and resurrection, and his saving redemption. In this book, a Benedictine monk examines the Christian praying of the Psalms, taking into account modern and contemporary research on the Psalms. Working from the Hebrew text, Fr. Laurence Kriegshauser offers a verse-by-verse commentary on each of the one hundred and fifty psalms, highlighting poetic features such as imagery, rhythm, structure, and vocabulary, as well as theological and spiritual dimensions and the relation of psalms to each other in the smaller collections that make up the whole. The book attempts to integrate modern scholarship on the Psalms with the act of prayer and help Christians pray the psalms with greater understanding of their Christological meaning. The book contains an introduction, a glossary of terms, an index of topics, a table of English renderings of selected Hebrew words, and an index of biblical citations. Praying the Psalms in Christ will be welcomed by students of theology and liturgy, by priests, religious, and laypeople who pray the Liturgy of the Hours, and by all Christians who seek to pray the Psalms with greater profit and fervor.

Praying the Psalms Changes Things is the fourth book in a very popular series by Lloyd Hildebrand that involves praying the Scriptures. The Bible says, And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us. and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. This spiritual confidence comes from praying God's Word, and the Psalms are particularly powerful sources of prayer for every believer. The Book of Psalms is known as the Bible's prayer book, and so many of the Psalms are prayers that we can personalize for ourselves. Dietrich Bonhoeffer called the Psalms, ...a great school of prayer..., and Praying the Psalms Changes Things is a very helpful textbook in that important school. As you read and pray, God will reveal His will to you and you will be changed. How does praying the Psalms change things? It helps you to know the truth about the situations and circumstances of your life. It will build your faith and give you a glimpse of what God wants for you. As a result, you will grow spiritually, your perspective on things will change, and you will see things changing around you. The Author writes, The Psalms reveal God's heart to us. Filled with promises from Him, the 15 chapters in the Book of Psalms tell us what He wants for us and how to obtain His blessings in our lives. As you read and pray the Psalms, you will see how much Godloves you.
