There's a calming peace from praying Psalms daily, as I discovered in this prayer book from authors Simmons and Rodriguez. It’s a unique writing style of declarations woven through the Psalms. It doesn’t have the story element familiar to devotional books or magazines, so even though it’s a 365 daily format, the writing style is unique and prayer focused.
Scriptures are referenced to "The Passion Translation," the modern published work of author Brian Simmons based upon his heart-focused research of the Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts. From this perspective, the simple prayers are focused on the heart.
Often when reading the prayers I sensed a lyrical writing, similar to how Psalms were written as songs. Sometimes I sensed a rhythmic flow to the words and great imagery. For example, "Awaken the Earth" (prayer for February 29) is a visual description of "God…riding the clouds and awakening the earth."
Grammatically, there was a frequent use of the word 'I" throughout the 365 prayers. For example, "Holy Place" (prayer for March 30) uses the word "I' a total of eight times and five times as the first word in a sentence. My eye kept drawing to the author… and frequently seeing the self-focused word repeated in the prayers. The prayers are written from a place of emotion, similar to Psalms.
For the prayer "Release" on June 23 the word "I" is used often as the prayer language in this book:
…I call to you
...I can't see the path
…I stand at the border
…I wasn’t created to
…I lay these anxieties
…I choose to release
…I move closer…
…I chose to remember
…I forget what
This prayer attached to Psalm 100:4 says:
You can pass through his open gates with the password of praise.
Come right into his presence with thanksgiving.
Come bring your thank offering to him
and affectionately bless his beautiful name! (TPT)
My expectation is a related prayer giving thanks to God and praising God, yet in this prayer only the last two sentences meet that expectation. I wanted to grab a pen (which I did) and turnaround the prayer into one of praise.
Many of my friends are enjoying the book too.
Combined with The Passion Translation of scripture, the daily prayers are equally passionate and anointed, deep, heart-felt, thoughtful and worth meditating upon.
The book itself is just glorious! It's cover is rich, in stunning ruby red leather, with an elegant pattern of tiny flames etched into the leather. This flame pattern is also the light background to glossy, gold-toned pages, with the same ruby red as its border. It's as beautiful as the messages contained within.
This book of prayers will be one I treasure for years to come and is going to be the perfect gift for my BFF's & family.
