Includes Study Guide
This little book invites us to study with some ancient experts in prayer, the persons who wrote the Book of Psalms. We havent read long in the psalms before we realize that the authors, like us, were altogether human, their lives marked by breathtaking highs and lows. But with all of that, they were saints who left us with the greatest collection of prayers in the possession of our human race.
What was their secret? I believe it was the quality of their friendship with God. And of course the language of that friendship is prayer. The psalmists dont give us any formula for effective praying. They dont offer a set of rules. But if we read their prayers carefully, we will learn something of their secret, the secret of the Ultimate Friendship.
