MAIN IDEA || The Book of Psalms has been designed as a prayer & song book for God’s people as they wait for the arrival of the Messiah and the fulfillment of God’s promises.
CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION:
1. So many Christians have a favorite Psalm. Is there any that you can identify or that are special to you in some way?
2. The Psalms have the power to resonate with our deepest human emotions. But God intends to do even more through them. See if you can talk through and grasp this idea together:
