Great Lent begins on Monday! That means it’s time to sign up for the Psalter Prayer Groups again! Yay! I can hardly wait to start tucking that little 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.
The last few times, I periodically posted some various writings on why reading the Psalms is so beneficial and I’ll be doing that again this time as well. There are some really beautiful thoughts on this. God-willing they will strengthen and encourage us as we prepare to receive the Bridegroom and as we trudge the rocky roads of our Lenten journeys. 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. Please be sure to follow the directions and do not leave just a first name. It’s a lot of extra time and work on my part to try and figure out who is who once assignments are posted and you aren’t sure which Mary, Katherine, etc. you are! 🙂

I will have the groups and everyone’s assigned readings up on Monday! 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.
Also, be sure to check out my 40 Days of Gratitude Journaling post. It’s another great way to stay focused and give thanks to God and focus on His blessings this lenten season!
