Praying with the Psalms

During this time of sadness, anxiety, and uncertainty, we want and need to take our emotions to God. The Psalms embrace the full range of human emotion from anger to awe, embodying the cries of the heart, the seeking of the soul, the search for comfort, and the desire to give praise. The Psalms are a vehicle for our dialogue with God.


During our time together, we’ll ponder and pray several psalms—delving into different translations. We will read from, Psalms for Praying, by Nan C. Merrill, Opening to You, by Zen master Norman Fisher, and the Bible, the New Revised Standard Version.


Together we will engage in quiet contemplative prayer, lectio divina (sacred reading), journal writing, and sharing in small groups. Join us and reconnect with the power of praying with the Psalms..

Colette Lafia is a spiritual director and retreat leader who has a passion for helping people connect more deeply with the presence of the sacred in their hearts and in their daily lives. She is the author of Comfort & Joy and Seeking Surrender, and the forthcoming The Divine Heart (Spring 2021). She is a graduate of the Living School through the Center of Action and Contemplation.
