Image for Prayer Through the Psalms

The book of Psalms is a collection of prayers and songs. These prayers are honest and to the point; they are very real to life, nothing is glossed over in the situations the writers are facing. At the same time they resound with the worship and adoration of God and the strong faith that God is here with us
