Description
Subtitle: Bringing the Psalms to Life

Published by Paraclete Press 2009

This book presents a detailed plan for using the Psalms as prayer by creating prayer sessions for personal prayer time that involve attuning your body to prayer and using it to create gestures that express the intent of each prayer. These sessions are divided into three different groupings. Alleluias are prayers of new beginnings. The Sanctus sessions cause us to pause and remember God and the sense of the sacred. The Amen sessions are prayers of acceptance of the place we are in the present moment with God.
