Do you want a wonderful experience of praising God? Read the 103rd Psalm aloud, just as if you were in His holy presence. Speak the words as your own. Let your very soul be the wellspring of the words. Take the liberty to insert the pronouns “I” “my” and “me” to personalize your reading. Speak the Psalm with deep feeling. Let your face and voice show the depths of your heart. Own the truth and power of the words. Let the Spirit fill you with truth and power. Let God’s holy word refresh and renew your spirit. Establish a heart connection with your God. He is waiting to receive you!
If you are with a trusted friend, it is wonderful to pray the Psalms together. The words have life in themselves, and you will feel the presence of the Spirit together. Your hearts will leap with joy, or you may become quiet with awe.
