The Christian season of Lent begins next week on Ash Wednesday, March 5th. I have the honor of preaching at our Ash Wednesday service at 7 PM in our Main Sanctuary at the Downtown Campus.
I have been attending Wednesday morning Bible study these past few weeks, taught by my long-time college and pastoral mentor, Dr. Jesse J. Sowell. The class is one our short-term Disciple Bible Study's, and is called "Invitation to the Psalms.
This past week, our daily exercise was to pray the Psalms in both the morning and the evening. I found this to be a great challenge. Jesse shared that it has been a common practice in many faith traditions to pray the entire Book of Psalms in 30 days. The Book of Common Prayer has a reading plan to read in support of this, with the Psalms divided, in order, into morning and evening sections.
So . . . I have made a decision . . . and I could use your prayer support.
I am going to pray the Book of Psalms for 30 days, in both March and April. This will include the entire season of Lent, and include the 10 days following Easter.
I don't know what to expect, and I hope to be able to share what I experienced.
More to come.
