Praying the Psalms Volume 2 is the second in the series by Alexander Venter. This book ‘Praying Our Challenges and Choices’ is a 12-week meditation program for individuals and small groups, teaching you the practice of meditative prayer. Commonly called lectio divina, praying the scriptures. God gave Israel 150 Spirit-inspired psalms to sing and pray daily – their spiritual food and drink. Volume One, ‘Learning to Pray’, introduced this Hebraic way of living dialogue with God. The meditation exercises will uncover the rich treasures hidden in David’s prayers, making the psalms alive, relevant and personal. The book will be your own prayer journal in which you record your meditations in answer to the probing questions, psalm by psalm, verse by verse. As you work the psalm-prayers they will work you, transforming you into a living prayer of relational intimacy with God.
