This past month, I’ve adopted a new challenge in my morning prayer life. Let’s face it, mornings are hard, and it’s not always easy to consistently pray when you’re running late for work. Am I right?
So, with some guidance of a priest, I decided to assign a different psalm every month for me to pray every day. Some days I have more time for prayer than others, but this is something small and tangible that I can do each morning (especially on the days when I don’t have the time to devote as much time to prayer as I would like). It takes 5 minutes of your day and I’ve already noticed a difference. It’s amazing to me how I can read the same scripture each day and get something new from it pretty much each time.
The Psalm for the month of May is Psalm 51. I’d love for you to pray along with me!
Also, just to be really fun, I’d like to include a SONG of the month in addition to a PSALM of the month. I know, so cute. In honor of the Josh Garrels album dropping last month, here’s my favorite Josh Garrels song. If you haven't heard of Josh Garrels, the dude's got some serious soul. Check it:
You see!!! It’s perfect for rolling the windows down and singing at the top of your lungs. And it gives me serious goose bumps. Optional challenge: have a competition with your significant other to see who can get the most words correct each time you sing it in the car (I’m totally winning).
