Psalms in Light of the Lord’s Prayer

 February 11, 2021

The Book of Psalms holds vast spiritual treasures, but how do we unlock these treasures?

Patricia Robertson’s Bible study, The Psalms in Light of the Lord’s Prayer, provides a format easily accessible to all readers. Using the Lord’s Prayer as a guide, Robertson divides the Psalms into seven categories. Each category relates to one of the seven phrases of the Lord’s Prayer.

The Bible study may be used individually or by a group. Each section includes reflection questions to guide the reader. It can be done over the course of a week, assigning each phrase of the Lord’s Prayer to a day of the week, starting with Sunday: Our Father who art in heaven; Monday: Hallowed be thy name; and etc. Or it can be done over seven weeks, or even over seven months. It makes a great Bible study for Lent, beginning with the first week of Lent through Holy Week.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer tells us, “All the prayers of Holy Scripture are summarized in the Lord’s Prayer, and are contained in its immeasurable breadth.” What better way to unlock this treasure?

“Whenever the Psalter is abandoned, an incomparable treasure vanishes from the Christian church. With its recovery will come unsuspected power.”— Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
