Tim Keller on Praying the Psalms

Some helpful, brief notes from Tim Keller (and maybe some others associated with Redeemer Presbyterian Church) on Praying the Psalms

1. The Psalms teach us to pray through imitation and response

2. The Psalms take us deep into our own hearts

3. Most importantly, the Psalms force us to deal with God as he is, not as we wish he was

Along with some suggestions:

• Try to understand a Psalm before praying it
• Linger over a Psalm
• Use the Psalms to praise God
• Use an order to guide you
