PSALMS: Petition For The Spirit Of Life by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Petition For The Spirit Of Life by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

From Psalms

We have taken this short stroll through the Psalter in order to learn to pray a few psalms a bit better.  It would not be difficult to arrange according to the Lord’s Prayer all the psalms mentioned.  We should have to change only slightly our arrangement of the order of the chapters.  But this alone is important, that we begin to pray the psalms with confidence and love in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“Our dear Lord, who has given to us and taught us to pray the Psalter and the Lord’s Prayer, grant to us also the spirit of prayer and of grace so that we pray with enthusiasm and earnest faith, properly and without ceasing, for we need to do this; he has asked for it and therefore wants to have it from us.  To him be praise, honor, and thanksgiving.  Amen.” (Luther)
