Honesty with God
Learning to Pray from the Psalms
by Daniel Schaeffer
“Most of the Scriptures speak to us; the Psalms speak for us.” —Athanasius
Prayer draws us closer to our heavenly Father. But we often wonder . . . What does God expect from me while I pray? How can I approach God personally without treating Him too casually? Can I express my darker emotions to a holy God?
The Bible reveals the kinds of conversations God wants to have with you in His prayer book, the Psalms. Discover the freedom to talk honestly with God by uncovering the raw, real prayers of the psalmists. They expressed every range of emotion of the heart—anxiety, anger, gratitude, delight—and you can too.
As you follow in their footsteps, you'll pray bold, powerful prayers with the assurance of God’s unwavering love.
This practical approach to prayer for individuals, book groups, and Bible studies includes discussion questions, for further study prompts, and action items.
