psalter group sign-ups {grent lent 2013}


Great Lent is right around the corner and you know what that means, right? It’s time to sign up for the Psalter Prayer Group again! Yay!  I can hardly wait to start tucking that little green book in my bag again.

This is one of my favorite things during the 40-day fasts.  It is a quiet time that I can look forward to each day.  And by quiet, I don’t mean the things around me are quiet, those things rarely are, but rather the hush that comes over my soul whenever I open my Psalter and read.

Also, I’ll be doing something new this year too.  I will be periodically posting writings on why reading the Psalms is so beneficial.  There are some really beautiful thoughts on this that I am looking forward to sharing with everyone.  God-willing it will strengthen and encourage us as we prepare to receive the Bridegroom and as we trudge the rocky roads on our Lenten journey.  So please keep an eye out for those!

So if you’re interested in joining please leave YOUR BAPTISMAL NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS in the comment section of this post. If you’re not familiar with this group, click here for all the details…

I will have the groups and everyone’s assigned readings up by Monday morning!  But don’t worry, if you stumble upon this post after the fast has begun, you can still sign up.  It’s never too late to join in!

You can purchase a pocket Psalter or full-sized one here.
