day 1 (trek 3): put a psalm in my heart

Today, with MoSt Church, we begin our third trek of five, sixty-day walks through the book of Psalms this year.

On our first pass through this land, we noted some things about the lay of the land, the structure and content, of each psalm as we read them (Jan.-Feb.). On our second hike, we literally sketched something we “saw” along our journey (Mar.-Apr.). During this third walkabout (May-June) let’s compose and write out a single sentence prayer that arises within us from one of the psalms in each day’s reading.

And, of course, I’ll encourage you to do as I do with my reading, namely doing it in a different translation of Scripture than you’ve read before (at least recently). This time through I’ll actually make use of two versions, the GNT (Good News Translation) and the CEV (Contemporary English Version).

Thus far in this project I’ve made daily posts here regarding the Put a Psalm in My Heart project. However, this time through I’ll create weekly posts, usually appearing on Saturdays. Following is this week’s reading schedule:

Tues.; May 1 – Ps. 1-5

Wed.; May 2 – Ps. 6-8

Thurs., May 3 – Ps. 9-11

Fri., May 4 – Ps. 12-14

Sat., May 5 – Ps. 15-17

Remember: compose a single sentence prayer for one of the psalms in each day’s reading.

Grace and peace.
