Praying the Psalms Bible Reading Plan & Journal is a 31-day devotional guide of baring grief to God.
In the days following my precious Taylor’s funeral, I would drop off my children to school and return home to an empty house. Sorrow would roll over my soul and I wept. I couldn’t think rationally. I found myself pouring over the psalms again. For as long as it took to gain enough strength to get up and do what I had to do next. Whether I needed to sweep the floor or write an article, I somehow could find enough clarity and strength in the psalms to get through the next moment. The next day, it all repeated. I’m still reading at least one psalm daily and imagine I will do so for the rest of my life.
I have always shared God’s Word with you from my own experiences. In my deepest pain, I’ve experienced the deepest love. The prayers in this book have been wrought in mourning and heartache. This may not be the right time for you to read raw prayers of grief. But you’ll know when it is.
