The Everyday Psalmist

A Guided Journal for Getting Real with God

Practice rest, silence, and emotional honesty to achieve a stronger self-awareness and a deeper connection with God by writing your own psalms and learning to speak the language of prayer.

As many people of faith can attest to, finding the right words to best express what you’re feeling when you pray can feel challenging, intimidating, or often inaccessible. But prayer is not and was never meant to be exclusive to those who have their spiritual life “together.” It is a practice available for all.

In this beautiful, full-color guide to practicing prayer through the language of the psalms, you will be introduced to an overview of the biblical psalms—what they are, the different types, their origin, and how they are arranged. Then with prompts ranging from quotes to questions to reflections, you will be guided to write your own psalms, by getting “everything out in the open before God,” in the words of Eugene H. Peterson.

In an undated, approachable format, The Everyday Psalmist brings you on a journey of awakening gratitude and honesty while drawing closer to the heart of God through the following three sections:
Life Is Beautiful: Beautiful things will happen
Life Is Hard: Terrible things will happen
God’s Got This: Don’t be afraid. I am with you

With this invaluable “writer’s guide” resource, you can begin a lifelong practice of creating your own psalms, not as a substitute for those in the Bible but rather as a complement to enrich your spiritual life as you learn to speak the language of prayer in a more personal and transformative way.
